    does leopard not come with it? my buddies helped setup my macbook wheni first got it... hooked me up with office 04 and photoshop but i THOUGHT my mac came with stuffit... but when i installed leopard yesterday i noticed that it was gone (i did an erase and install)

    is stuffit a 3rd party app or does leopard just not come with it?

    Stuffit is a third party App, but it was bundled with older Macs, you can download it, or use the Unarchiver.

    I don't think it's ever been bundled with OSX. Do you need stuffit, or just expander? Expander is a free download.

    just need something that will open .rar files and other such things... so i guess expander will do.

    Yeah, Expander will work fine. Or Unarchiver. There are a number of solutions. But I've found the latest version of Expander to be very quick.

    Stuffit Expander was bundled with every version of MacOS X up through MacOS X 10.3.

    Mostly On-Topic,

    Can Stuffit compress INTO .rar? or do need something else?

    I was actually thinking of the full Stuffit program. Still, I didn't realize Expander was bundled, either.

    get macpar deluxe for all your .rar and .par and .par2 needs. It can open them and create them.

    **shudder** StuffIt. What a dreadful product and horrible website. You can't download from them without signing up (at last check anyway, I gave up on them a loooong time ago). I've used The Unarchiver with great success.
