Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.

I actually have an old Power Macintosh 7500 that has PGP 2.6 on it,  
but it's kinda dismantled at the moment; it will take a little while  
to get the time and inclination to put it back together again and run  
PGP 2.6.

But, hopefully, your technique will work, so I won't have to screw  
around with IDEA for the rest of my life.
