gave the resulting Toast file a name that exceeded the classic Mac filename length of 32 characters,

That's was I look for when I upload files. Try to short them below 32 (including the _ char added by the site), and giving the files and screen shots and its URL *) at this very place an unique name (or at least, let start all the file names with the same unique characters).

*) When creating a page, I enter the Floppy/CD image name into the applications name field to get the matching URL. When created and uploaded, I change the text of the applications name field.

Stuffit file is corrupted

No, its fine. Tested qin.sit and it extracts OK to a Toast file which also mounts OK.

Your problem with this is elsewhere.

The only criticism with the archive I have, is the original archivist when using Toast to create the image, gave the resulting Toast file a name that exceeded the classic Mac filename length of 32 characters, and Toast or StuffIt (likely StuffIt) truncated the filename by dropping the .toast suffix ending from the file's name. The file qin.sit extracts to a Toast file named "Qin Tomb of the Middle Kingdom." It mounts OK using Toast or the built in image mounter in a PPC Mac OS X, however, the actual name of the mounted disk is a simple "Qin".

If it helps, MD5 checksums of the .sit and extracted content are:

d03a606b00eb4e8e0f81e485f0c4b78a *qin.sit

Works well in OS 9, haven't tested in Classic, Sheepshaver or BasiliskII.
