That's because Apple has the file mapping for ".pkg" files in the
Internet control panel and File Exchange control panel set to AppleLink
package files (which were compressed archives sort of like Stuffit files
or Zip files.)

Just go into the File Exchange and/or Internet control panels and change
.pkg's to use type 'pkg ' (note the ending space) and creator "1NCU" and
they'll be NCU packages when you download 'em from the 'Net or copy 'em
from a PC-format diskette or cartridge or CD-ROM.
