Changing file type of bin and hqx from PC to Mac

Hi, I have an Apple Macintosh Proforma 580CD, and I wanted to get it up and
running as a web surfing machine it has Mac OS 8.1 on it. I have tried to
download a installation of internet explorer with a bin and hqx extension.
(I know it works differently on macs), but this is my point. The mac does
not have a browser installed and the only way I can get a file on it is
through a Win 2000 server as I have no other macs. Does any one know how to
change the file so that I can download a browser installer on win 2k server
and install it on the mac?
QUOTE Thanks
