I've got a installer on a dmg, that when downloaded by Safari 3.04,

I'd like to reproduce this in my WebKit based application. Are
there functions that do this?
Hey Bill. You probably want to investigate the /usr/bin/hdiutil
command line utility which can attach, mount, and verify disk images.
I also recommend looking into the NSWorkspace API, specifically the -
[NSWorkspace openFile: withApplication:] method which you'll find very
useful for kicking off the Installer.
