    you need stuffit expander, it's a free download ... just search version tracker for the OS 9 version

    Hmm... I thought Disk Copy would take care of those bin files... :confused:

    Maybe you need Stuffit (which I though came with a OS 9 install) - remember to get version 7 as later versions are for OS X only (edit: just like revenuee said... I'm just too slow ;)).

    .sea = self-extracting archive

    Use that, it'll extract itself if you "run" the archive (since it's really an application with an archive inside of it) so you can install it.
