After the down load of Fetch (program for FTP of files) completes the file goes straight into invisible folder I can see the file there but can not open or move it use it etc. How do I get around this problem and why does it go directly into the invisible folder?

I don't know as the mac machine is at a school I'm networking and I'm currently at home. I have gotten around the problem now by downloading fetch to a ibook and it saved to the desktop. Don't know why the OS 9 mac put it in a invisible folder. I'm trying to convert over from mac's to windows and I'm trying to find a way for the windows 98 machines running office 97 to open macintosh files most end with .bin any sugestions?
I was using fetch to FTP from the Mac OS 9  to my server running Linux RedHat 9 then through SAMBA can access the Mac files. But I can not read them as they are the wrong format. Will accept your awnser as I have now moved on to trying to find the best and most convienent way to convert file formats.

.bin is a binary file. It needs to be decoded using stuffit expander.
