You can also use simple old WinZip on the PC, you know. With a registered
copy, you can create self-extracting archives.
You'll definitely need Aladdin's STuff-It for the Mac, though. There aren't
any programs which will work on both PC and Mac to extract stuff, except
Stuff-It, and I don't think their self-extractables work on both platforms
