    I just purchased an iMac G3 with OS 8 on it. I plan on upgrading it to OS 9 today, but before that, I started scanning through the Applications and I noticed that Appleworks was on there. Since I am doing a clean install of OS 9, is there any way to save Appleworks for OS 9? Can I just drag the Appleworks folder to a USB drive and then when I have nuked the drive, put it back on?

    (also, how would I do office 2001?)

    Thanks :)

    I *think* you can selectively install AppleWorks from your original iMac Install CD.

    Only problem is, my iMac didn't include that CD, as it is secondhand.

    Sorry for the double post, but how would I also save office 2001?

    If you do not have licences for the software then we are not able to provide assistance with it.
