    Specs:
    i dont have no mac's
    there should be a free version of stuffit out there, check out versiontracker.com

    installing programs is a lot different than in windows. for eg, to install firefox:
    download firefox
    open disk image it should put on your desktop
    drag the firefox icon into your applications folder and let it copy
    firefox is now installed

    this same basic process works with a lot, if not almost all, programs for macs. if it needs to be installed it will probably come with viseinstaller and run simply by doubleclicking.

    hope this helps

    Stuffit should come with mac OS. Check your install CD.
