MasterDogma is on a distinguished road

I just downloaded SimCity 3000 onto my G3 Panther. It has 10.3.9 (default) and Mac OS 9 installed. In the folder I was provided it included 6 files, 1 BEFORE YOU INSTALL.rtf, 1 SimCity3000 Installer (document), 1 Quicktime Installer (folder), 1 SimCity 3000 (folder) and 1 torrent receipt.

I clicked the BEFORE YOU INSTALL item and a text document appeared and this is what it said:


1) Just open this folder and keep it in your hard disk or burn it on a CD.

2) Click on "SimCity3000 Installer" and it should do the rest.

3) Enjoy!

P.S. This game was initially designed to run on Mac OS 9 (classic) and it works only with that version. In order to run the game you need to install OS 9 in your current OSX (can be Panther or Tiger) and once installed, it will open as a simulator.

If you don't know where to find it, try to check on your Mac OSX installation CD that came with your computer and it should be there.
I tried double-clicking the Installer, but says "There is no default application specified to open the document 'SimCity3000 Installer'," and then prompts me to select an application.

Nothing I know of can open a document from Mac OS 9. I tried starting up Classic and then opening it, but nothing changed.

What am I doing wrong? I really want to play this game!
