would be good for you. You can then install Appleworks directly from the OS X installtion disk.
Alternatively, dragging the App from the old drive (Including stuff from the Library) will work too.
I'd start with the Pacifist route first.
... on a newly installed HD. I want to get Appleworks off of my original set of Panther software discs that came with my G4 iBook.
Is it as simple as dragging the program from the install disc (applications folder) onto my new HD or do I need to grab files from the library folder too?
