Yes, and no. Apple created a version of the disk utility that would mount DMG files in OS 9, but never publicly released it. As far as I know it is still unreleased.

A little trick is simply to change the file extension from .dmg to .img.

Hope that helps.

Ay, you're quite right.
I was thinking along the lines of .toast files.

Thank-you for picking up on my error.
