    Hi all.

    I have an older Mac (a Performa) on which I'd like to install some printer drivers I've downloaded from Apple's website. I don't have Internet connectivity on the Mac, and as I don't have any other Mac computers, my only option is to download the "sea.bin" format files on my PC and then transfer them to the Mac either via floppy or Zip disk. Unfortunately, I've discovered that when I transfer the files on my PC to a PC-formatted floppy or Zip disk, my Mac will read the disk and identify the file but not allow me to open or execute the file (the file shows up with a "PC" icon).

    Is there any way that I can transfer a Mac file from my PC to my Performa, or will I just need to find another Mac somewhere on which I can download the files ?

    Have you tried copying the file of the floppy disk onto the performa's hard drive?
