that you download the file to your Desktop [done]. Then
right/Control-click the .sit file, and choose "Open With" from the
menu, and in Open With, choose "StuffIt Expander". That should
decompress the file.
It will then be a PDF, and double clicking it in the Finder should
result in its opening in Adobe Reader.
