Well, I don't think you can install the Mac dock as that is proprietary mac product. There may be some hack out there but that wouldn't be a supported process. You might want to try AWN (http://wiki.awn-project.org/index.php?title=Main_Page) instead.

but it not really what i wanted.
is there method to install mac os dock?

I am unaware of any method to install the osx dock in Linux and because it's very integrated into osx my guess is it probably can't be done. There are several apps that are similar. AWN is probably one of the most popular but I've also heard that kiba dock is popular. Both do the same thing as the osx dock but maybe don't "look" as slick. However, function-wise they are very similar.
