You'll need to get a bit of software that will let you change the CREATOR
/ File types. I believe they're supposed to be 'PKG ' and 'pkgX' (not
sure about the case, but if you do have another Newton package send it to
whatever software you use to change file types and you can copy it from
there.) If I recall right ResEdit has this feature, but there's better
software to do this from, including some drag and drop... I think it's
called Typer or such...
