can't open .sit file for mouse software

I'm trying to download Kensington's Mouseworks software, I tried the company's site and the Apple download page (the file names are slightly different):

http://www.kensington.com/html/1385.html
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...ouseworks.html

In both cases, the file name ends in .dmg.sit and when downloaded, it does not choose a default application to open it. Is Tiger able to open .sit or do I need StuffIt or something else?

There have been a lot of topics on this. Apple stopped including the Stuffit framework with OS X so now if you want to use this horrible software, you will have to download it. You can do so here.

Which you almost certainly will have to, as a lot of things still come in .sit format (mainly made by Microsoft actually!).

Congrats on the upgrade, aren't the iMac G3's just the worst to get into. I mean the HDD is on the bottom of the machine! lol, I upgraded my 6 to 20, in less than 4 hours! lol, on PC's it takes me about 15 minutes, well then again, I had troubles with the CDROM drive sticking out too far.
