the kermit downloading blues

I would like to download a file from cambridge.apple.com which is in .sit
fort. I can get it from there to my own remote login site using ftp,
but I cannot get it to my local machine intact. The problem is that the
remote site has only kermit, not xmodem (at least invoking sb doesn't
work). Of course by using kermit, I receive an integer number of packets,
the last of which is partially empty. This last packet then causes a CRC
error when I run BinHex.

Is there an easy way around this problem, such as truncating the file
to the correct length? Or a setting in Kermit that would work?
Then again, I'm not very good at UN*X, and I could be overlooking something
there. Suggestions?
