I think I am getting an iBook in a couple of weeks, and since i'm on 56k I have downloaded a few big files on my PC. I searched on google to see if I could just burn the files normally and they would work on Mac. But I found that if I open the files in Windows the Data Fork would get damaged or something.
The file was a .sit, and i downloaded StuffIt for windows to see what was in the file. I extracted the .dmg file and put it in a folder which i want to burn to cd.
My first question is, will the .dmg be damaged, or will I still be able to open it on the Mac?
Second, on my google search again it said that executables (i'm assuming .dmg is a Mac executable?) cant just be burned normally, but I could really figure it out from what was said how I do it. Can anyone help?
Thanks a lot!

hmmmm PC's normally have the wierdest Operating system for burning mac software. But I don't believe .dmg files don't have resource forks if I'm not mistaken. It's normally the .img files made on OS9 that do have resource forks
but if you can compress it to .sit somehow then your gold.
