StuffIt is the dominating archiving utility. The installer you got there
is a StuffIt archive, therefore you need to have StuffIt on your Mac, to
expand the archive. Stuffit comes in three flavors: StuffIt Deluxe
(commercial product), Stuffit Lite (shareware) and StuffIt Expander
(shareware/freeware - extractor only). You can donload SuffIt from major
download sites of directly from its producers: Aladdin Systems at
