I've just got my mac os 8.0 installed..now I have problems installing bootx, I have tried moving bootx using a disk from my pc to the mac cus I have stuffit installed only on my pc, but I get errors trying to start bootx. Now when the NIC finally works on the mac I can download BootX directly from the mac but the problem is I can't expand the .sit file! I don't know what program to use? It seems the older versions of stuffit expander for Mac need at least OS 8.6 to work!? so where do I get my hands on something that works with 8.0?

Hmmm ... I remember going through this ... the sense of accomplishment after you're finished is just wonderful ...

Here's a link to stuffit expander 5.5:

I don't know if OS 8.0 can expand a .hqx though ... chicken and the egg problem ...

If this doesn't work, maybe I could de-compress it on my OS X and re-compress it with something OS 8.0 can understand ...
That shouldn't mess up its execute-ablity.

thanx :) I also found a 5.x version on my 9.1 CD...

yea It'll be cool when it's all up and running...it's always fun to try new things, though it can be rather frustrating some times too...
