IIRC you need to make your web server serve those files with the correct
Content-Type, instead of the generic application/octet-stream.

Unfortunately I don't remember the correct one, couldn't find it on
maemo.org after searching for 5 minutes, and experiment shows
maemo.org's application catalog itself serves .install files as
"text/html".  Does that mean maemo.org's catalog is broken for OS2007
users, or that I'm wrong about my content-type assumptions?
