There is a slick set of tools written by the mini vmac author to move files. You just mount the receive file tool disk image and run the utility. It then waits for a file to be dropped onto the window and saves it into the mac file system instead of trying to mount it.

With it you can move over a .hqx for use with stuffit. The trick is getting stufffit expander onto the virtual mac. I don't remember if the vmacboot.dsk has it, but in general it is not too hard to find a disk image with stuffit or another tool that will help you bootstrap.

I use mini vmac on my machines and it is very convenient. You can also use Basilisk II for better 68K emulation or Sheep Shaver for PPC. I run 7.6.1 on Sheep Shaver and it works really well for the basic stuff I use it for like disk image and file manipulation.

Still I love having a tiny stable Mac Plus emulator mini vmac is still my favorite.

I've installed Stuffit Expander 4.0.1,but there's a new problem: Stuffit Expander can't found archives. For example, I've a .sit archive and I want to expand it, but Stuffit Expander can't found this archive: http://www.ipix.lt/images/12053482.jpg .

Maybe you should install Stuffit 4.5 instead.
