Like you would on any Unix system.

You open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal, navigate into the directory with the Ventrilo server executable, and start it from the command-line, such as:

anagram:~ wade$ cd Downloads/ventrilo_srv-2.3.1-Darwin-powerpc/
anagram:~/Downloads/ventrilo_srv-2.3.1-Darwin-powerpc wade$ ./ventrilo_srv

You're either double-click Ventrilo from the Finder, or not changing directories into the ventrilo directory at the command-line before starting the program.

Don't do that. Using the command-line, change into the directory and start it from the command-line.

No, nothing is wrong.

Cut and paste your terminal session where you're trying to start the server and receive the error message.

Copy and paste the text out of your terminal window and show me the steps you did to try to start it.
