Installing Pagemaker 7 in newer Macs - Mac Applications & Software

At work a lot of us use Pagemaker and haven't moved on to InDesign in many cases. Pagemaker works fine on pre-2003 Macs running OSX in the classic mode. It'll install fine if one boots up in OS9 but several experienced mac users and I have been unable to install using classic mode in OSX, so we can't get it installed in 2003 Macs that won't boot up in OS9. Does anyone know a work around? thanks...

    Sure. Install it on a Mac that can boot OS 9, then copy the
    application (and all the System Folder items) it installed to one that
    can only boot X.

    Bite the bullet and move up to InDesign. Versions 1 & 1.5 were not that
    great, but 2 is great. I still have PM 7 on my iMac, but I can't tell
    you the last time I used it. ID takes a bit of getting used to, but
    it's well worth the effort.

    It's sad that Adobe has chosen not to at least carbonize PM. As OSX
    becomes the defacto Mac OS, many good programs like PM are going to
    fall by the wayside. InDesign is a great program but it's huge, has a
    large lerning curve and is overkill for "quickie" publications. That
    being said, I would suggest you use your "older" Macs to run OS9 only
    programs. (Personally, I never want to see the Classic environment!)
    At the same time you might want to begin to learn ID. It would help
    if your computers are networked, since ID can open PM files with no
    loss.

    Thanks for the replies, but we have a bunch of computer illiterates here
    and the only way that they'll use ID is to take PM off their Macs (which
    I'll eventually do!!!)

    I'll try the suggestion to drag from another mac running OS9 but am not
    optimistic.
