Not that I am aware of. All you need to do is download the MacTeX
and run it. That will give you TeXLive 2008, as well as a new version
of TeXShop and several other apps. Note that you can switch between
the 2007 and 2008 distributions using the TeX Distribution preference
pane that is installed. You can also update your TeXLive 2008
installation at any time using tlmgr, which will also be installed.
Instructions can be found in this thread:
I hope this helps.
