OS 10.4 - Problem opening .pkg .mpkg files.

I just started using mac os X for the first time in my life. So sorry if my questions sounds stuped.

I have MAC os X 10.4.8 isntalled on my G4. Nothing else. After I try to install new programs from a CD, I get a message that I need to chose new apllication for .mpkg file to open it. The same with .pkg files. As I understood it must be a disk mount utility on my computer? But as I can see my utility folder is empty. I tried to use stuffix expander, but it didnt help either.

Any ideas how should I install these types of files? Thanks in advance.

Try using that program to install the Utilities off of the OS CD. Then you should be able to install packages
