purplera1n for the Mac & RC2a
A few mins ago, geohot released purplera1n for the Mac, as well as a minor upgrade to the windows version.
From geohot's blog:

That, and iRealSMS had just barely gotten their product to the point where the beta wasn't crashing SB on 3.0.
From what I've seen on my phone, most of the apps that work on the 3G JB version work on the 3GS JB.
But that's just my uneducated gut feeling based on my own tinkering.
Edit: Here's a link to saurik's statements as a point of reference.

I have jailbroke many 3G and a few 3GS's. When I did my personal 3GS, I even restored back to stock in iTunes from RC1 and it was flawless like other jailbreaks. Then applied the RC2 (I could have broken over the top of RC1 with RC2, but I don't trust doing that way, I like to start from a fresh Restore just in case any "pieces" get left behind and cause problems later.
Piece of Cake, even for a first-timer it's seriously SUPER EASY.
Good Luck, You'll do fine. Just follow instructions.

Where are the instructions?
I have installed purplerain on my iMac but have yet to connect my iPhone to it. Does it instruct you what to do as you advance through the jailbreak?
The only thing that's confusing me is how people are talking about changing files..

Wow.. Not sure why but it didn't mess up my phone.
Would that have bricked it? I tried to run winterboard, it went into safe mode and I restarted the phone a few times but it wouldn't come out of safe mode. I had to restore and go through the purplera1n process again. All is well now.
