pearpc-6gib.img.bz2 should, when unpacked, be around
6GB, right? Well, on my machine it unpacks to approx 4
GB in size... :-?

    Then I guess you're using a filesystem like FAT32 that
    doesn't support files > 4GB. Please convert it to NTFS or
    use a smaller image.

    Or maybe you're using an unpacker that doesn't support such
    big files?

    I think it's a 2gb limit on fat, even the 3gb image won't
    unpack to fat32.
    Hard Codes 'Compress 2000' [ http://www.hard-code.com/ ]
    will unpack correctly.
    You can get a fully functioning 30 day trial from them.

    Sorry, 'Compress 2000' I used for the Darwin .gz archive.
    Winrar will extract ok :)
