Newbie Mac sound questions

I'm converting some SuperCard projects which have sounds (and maybe 
other stuff) in the Resource Fork. I don't have a copy of ResEdit any 
more (does it run on MacOS 9.2.2 - doesn't seem to be in the Apple 
archive). Can anyone suggest a way  to extract these resources? I 
tried a shareware app called 'SndSampler' but it claims there aren't 
any 'snd' resources in my SC file (there are).

Ålso, AFAICS the Revo documentation doesn't seem to say much about 
what sound files one can play - I have already gathered that 
Mac-native sounds are a no-no. Apart from aif (is '.aif' the correct 
extension for Windows systems?), what other formats are allowed 
(clearly one can play a QuickTime soundtrack, for example)? What is 
the most efficient way of playing a short sound with no delay, to 
give the effect of a system beep, or a rollover sound like you'd have 
in a Flash movie?
