Re: [NTLK] Downloading Packages Under Mac Classic

I had the same problem using OS 9 in classic on my G4 Digital Audio. I
downloaded the package "Packtype" and now drag my other packages over
Packtype which causes them to then be recognized by NCU as Newton. The
package kind of enlarges or expands once dragged and held over Packtype,
then you know they are ready.

I know there are a few places that explain that you have to tell your browser to download packages as binary files in order for them to be recognized as Newton packages once downloaded, but I could not find any instructions for doing this on any of the browser versions mentioned above.
