BasiliskII and a ethernet connection  has been what I've used for a 
while now almost like having two macs.
Thank you all for not asking how I'd get netscape on to a floppy  over 
to a mac. Brain fart. :)

You know, please leave your comments to yourself, they are unneccesary,

This is what I wrote

And .bin files just unpack them self do they?
*Not being funny, its been along time since I've had this problem*.

I followed your link to jagshouse and looked at the files for download, 
they're all .bin files and though your post mentions Transmac, 
formatting floppies and copying files over it does not mention how these 
.bin file are going to be unpacked once on the mac. Scott explained the 
bit that was missing, you might wish to post full instructions if you 
can't stand being questioned about it

I'm sorry you appear to be so thin skinned, I tried to allow for that 
with the second sentence.
You have 5000 emails cause people like yourself keep adding these sort 
of emails. Go figure

Re: How to get Stuff it?

well to get stuff from PC onto the mac, I use a set of applications called
hfsutils (google for them) they will write to mac formatted disks and with
mac programs (unstuffing stuff from PC disks tends to not work)

as for getting stuffit...I dont know...maybe if you could give it to someone
you know with a mac and they could unstuff the installer and put it back on
a disk

Hi.
The old chicken and egg story.
The easiest way I've found is to install Netscape which includes stuffit 
as a utility then you can upgrade stuffit and do away with the browser. 
Cover disc's from mac mag's will have stuffit in a self extracting 
archive. Easier still is getting someone to post it to you.
Do .sea files attach to email ok

Hmm, this is easy.  Actually very easy.

Do a search for a program called TransMac.  This is a program that will
allow you the ability to write Mac based disks from a PC.  It works
excellent and if you register it you can make Mac CDs and format Mac drives
even.  Its worth a definite download.
  

And .bin files just unpack them self do they?

Most/all of the Mac Floppy Utilities for Windows will unbinhex things on 
the way to the floppy. TransMac, HFV Explorer, etc. If you have a binned 
version of Stuffit, you can copy it to a Floppy with the program and it 
will retain its Maciness unlike what would happen if you were to use a 
Windows program to decompress it to a floppy.

It's just about the only way to solve the chicken/egg program :)

Thanks Scott, I have one or both installed and cant say I've used them 
to unbinhex things, having more than one mac usually means you dont have 
to. Dont .sea files transfer like sit or .bin files or do they need 
further packing to protect the Maciness  before transfer from a pc?
Geez Im getting rusty on this stuff.

Geez Im getting rusty on this stuff.

As long as it's stuffed, it's protected. Even .sea files are okay, though 
they won't self extract anymore. If they're dragged and dropped onto the 
StuffIt Icon, they'll still decompress.

The real trick is getting a functional copy of StuffIt (5.5 is the last 68k 
version and generally the version you want to end up with) onto a Mac for 
the first time. I haven't used TransMac but with HFV Explorer, when you 
drag a file onto a Mac Floppy you get a dialog box that asks how you want 
to copy it. UnBinHexing it is one of the options, and what you'll generally 
want to do.

I used to have a binhexed copy of just the Stuffit 5.5 executable somewhere 
on a server somewhere, it just barely fit on a floppy by itself (make sure 
it's a good floppy with no bad sectors, it just barely fits). Not sure 
where its got to. I'll look for it. It might be 
http://ncc1701.home.mindspring.com/stuffit.hqx but don't quote me on that.

Oh, another thing, once you get Stuffit 5.5 installed, you'll probably want 
to track down a copy of DropStuff 5.5. Not only will it allow you to create 
archives, but adds extra funtionality to Stuffit like being able to do zips 
and cpts.

One last note: If you're going to be stuck on a Winbox, you might check 
this out: http://basilisk2.cjb.net . Not only is it a handy way to transfer 
files, but often makes Windows a bit more bearable ;) It does need a 512k/1
