Indeed there is ... but the Mac pages on the LyX wiki only mention the full

On the MacTeX home page http://www.tug.org/mactex/ there is a clear reference 
to smaller packages. I did a bit of exploring of TeX, LaTeX, and LaTeX front

Indeed there is ... but the Mac pages on the LyX wiki only mention the full
MacTeX distribution and then take the user straight to the download
directory. If the wiki link used http://www.tug.org/mactex/ instead then
prospective users would be alerted to the choice from the very beginning.

On the MacTeX home page http://www.tug.org/mactex/ there is a clear reference 
to "smaller packages." I did a bit of exploring of TeX, LaTeX, and LaTeX front 
ends before deciding what I wanted to do -- all of probably a couple hours max. 
A good idea when getting into something as complex and fundamental to your 
future work as LyX/LaTeX/TeX.

Err, sorry I don't understand how does "CleanMyMac" have any effect upon the
content of the LyX wiki? The wiki entry for Mac points direct to an FTP
directory for MacTeX (the package is 1.2Gb) others have suggested that there
are smaller (streamlined) packages available but anyone looking at the LyX
wiki isn't going to know that. We don't all have perfect knowledge.

And if one wants to boast LyX is installed here on a MacMini Server with 8Gb

The suggestion to link to the MacTeX homepage is a good one. (We had

you listed is somewhat old; Apple don't appear to be update those download

Remember you will need to have an installed TeX before installing LyX.
Follow the hints on he Mac-specific pages in the Wiki, which will direct you
to CTAN for a Mac TeX install (be aware that the recommended MacTeX
install is a pkg of 1.2Gb). MacTeX will install most of the common TeX/LaTeX

(www.lyx.org), where you can download the program. You're also finding a 
manual, how to install it, because you need a TeX distribution to running LyX

 To whom it may concern:
 
 
 I have never used LyX before but I've been told it is a very good program. I 
 would like to install it on my Mac OSX 10.6.7
 
 I found LyX available on Apple's web site here: 
 http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/unix_open_source/lyx.html
 
 However, the download failed. Would you direct me to where I can find step by 
 step instructions to get LyX properly downloaded and running on my Mac?
 
 Thanks in advance,
 
 Sam

That's no problem, if you never used LyX. Just go to the LyX homepage 
(www.lyx.org), where you can download the program. You're also finding a 
manual, how to install it, because you need a TeX distribution to running LyX
