- Hi Karen,
It sounds like you are trying to put together some of
the separate downloads, but instead you can download
an installer that will put everything together for you.
Go to this group's Yahoo site.
Click Links on the left.
Click the third folder: Sheepshaver and Basilisk.
Go to the last item: Sheepshaver WordPerfect Install 1.1.
Click it and follow the directions.
That'll give you SheepShaver, WordPerfect, the old system,
and lots of other pieces that makes it all work.
You can also download a free word processor, NeoOffice, from
neooffice.org; it runs in OSX, opens
WordPerfect (and other) files, and lets you
save them in lots of formats.
