It's been a while since I used gnuplot, but the following steps should be 
generally valid.
I don't have my ibook with me (my workplace is unfortunately a Windows 
My gnuplot 4.0 installation is from the mac binary at 
with aquaterm from 
<http://aquaterm.sourceforge.net>http://aquaterm.sourceforge.net . 
(Aquaterm was not included with gnuplot in that distribution)

To launch gnuplot, I open the Terminal, cd to the folder which contains 
gnuplot, enter "gnuplot" at the prompt. Then gnuplot launches and the 
prompt changes to "gnuplot>". Then I type "set term aqua" to set the 
terminal to aquaterm.

* Before trying to launch gnuplot, you must have X11 installed from the Mac 
OSX Tiger disks.*
