    You need "Stuffit Expander" from the website:
The installer for Windows should put all the .DLL objects in their proper places (your .DLLs may be in the wrong folders). Then to unstuff a .sit (Mac) file, either drag the object over the Stuffit Expander icon, or start up Stuffit Expander and open the .sit file.
    I've got both a Mac and an IBM-type computer (a Gateway) at home, and this works on the Gateway.  Also, although i don't know that much about IBM-machines, i kind of thought that the unZip utility (at least the up-to-date ones) would handle .sit files.  Maybe not.
