Hi Tim

Are you clicking on the TeX-Fat.dmg ?  If so the
OS has got confused and thinks its is an Explorer
document (classic Explorer by the look of it.)
It needs to be opened in Disk Copy.
Find Disk Copy in Applications/Utilities.  Drag and drop
TeX-Fat.dmg onto Disk Copy.  Hopefully it will mount it as a
volume and then you can run the installer inside that volume.

If that doesn't work try Control-Clicking with it and
hope there is a contextual menu saying Open with. Follow
that and try and track down Disk Copy.

If that doesn't do it do Command-I on it (Get Info in the Finder)
and select Disk Copy as the application to open it. Then
you should be able to double click it and have it launch disk copy.


PS It hasn't by any chance saved as TeX-Fat.dmg.1 has it ? It
needs to be a name ending in .dmg to have any hope of  being
opened by Disk Copy when you double click.
