Question:
When installing a component into a package in Delphi 3, why is 
Delphi 3 complaining about not finding an associated PAS file? 
All I should need is the DCU file.

Answer:
That's true only if the component was compiled using Delphi 3.
If it's a Delphi 2 DCU file, it will tell you "Fatal Error" and 
complain about not finding an associated PAS file. In order to 
install such a component, you will need the source code and 
recompile the PAS file.  

There are two solutions to the problem:

Have the vendor of the component re-compile the component 
with Delphi 3.
If you have the source to the component, re-compile the 
component with Delphi 3 and use the resultant DCU.
