What John is saying is that you can, and should,
download the 243mb file from the Links section
here. It's called "SheepShaver-WordPerfect
Install 1.1". [His parenthetical simply
acknowledged that he knew that you are not using
either Leopard or on an Intel machine. Therefore,
you do not have to run SheepShaver which emulates
the Classic mode on Macs that either are using
Leopard or are the Intel machines.]
Once you have downloaded "SheepShaver-WordPerfect
Install 1.1", open the disk image by double
clicking on it. It's the file that ends with the
suffix ".dmg". Once you open the disk image, copy
the folder called "WordPerfect " to your own
hard drive in the folder in which you have your
OS9 applications. Once there, use that version of
WordPerfect and you should be okay.
Over to you,
