As you know, I've bumped up against this problem, and haven't, yet, 
found the solution for the Mac case, though several people responded on 
the the Windows solution.

In fact, as a test I just opened a notebook in Mathematica 4.0 (by 
dragging the notebook on top of a Mathematica 4.0 alias);  then did not 
merely a SAVE, but a SAVE AS on the notebook from Mathematica 4.0; and 
then double-clicked on the SAVED AS notebook.

Result:  the notebook opened in MathReader 4.0, not Mathematica 4.0.  
That's NOT supposed to happen, and I think indicates that Mathematica has 
somehow messed up the standard actions of the Mac OS.
