ConvertLIT can be used to break the DRM on LIT files, as well as its undoubtedly legitimate format shifting capability on DRM-free LIT files such as those from Baen. So I can't provide a link here, but it is easily found on the web. There is a GUI version for Windows, use it to "extract" a .lit file and you will get a directory containing the "exploded" version (HTML, images, and an OPF file). I will assume you put this in the same directory as the LIT file.
Download mobigen.exe from Mobipocket Developer Center
. It is a zip file that just contains the command line program mobigen.exe. Copy this to your standard LIT directory. The exploded file will be a subdirectory. Open a command prompt window (one way to to select it via START > PROGRAMS > Accessories). Type in the command
you can cut and paste the directoryname from the Address line of a standard window (it often starts C:\) and here it should be the directory with the exploded file in it. Now issue the command:
..\mobigen.exe filename.opf -c1 -s0 -jpeg
The "..\" is there because mobigen.exe is in the directory one down from where you are. The result should be filename.mobi.
