I downloaded Floyd's Wish You Were Here DTS Quad mix.

The files are .MDF and .MDS, which I believe are files generated from Alcohol 120 - which is a PC based program.

I think I need to convert or combine these into an .ISO file in order to burn with Toast? I've searched and all I can come up with are posts from 2003 about this situation. anyone have a better idea as to how I can burn this on a MAC?

In my experience simply changing the extension to .iso or .img has been sufficient but if it's not in your case you could try MDF2ISO (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/32074) .

Anyone know how to create MDS files on a Mac? Without using VPC?

Ain't no way no how...lessin' you have an Intel Mac where Parallels *might* manage it.
