The installer for Macintosh is Bin-Hex encoded (to avoid difficulties in file transfer often encountered when transferring MACINTOSH files from UNIX servers). You will need a Bin-Hex utility to decode the file after downloading it. STUFFIT EXPANDER, FETCH, and BINHEX 4.0 are examples of freeware utilities that support this function. One convenient way to handle this (with browsers like NETSCAPE) is to set up STUFFIT EXPANDER as a helper application that is launched when downloading a file with mime type "application/mac-binhex40" and with the extension ".hqx"
