Photoshop 7/Mac OS 10.2 install questions

I'm trying to find out some info before I make some software purchases, wondering if any Mac users can help....

I have an older Mac, running OS 8.6 with Photoshop 6. I also have a newer Mac someone gave me, running OS 10.2.6. I want to switch over to the newer Mac, but Photoshop 6 won't install on that OS without Classic being installed on that computer (I don't have a Mac OS 9 or 10 disk).

My question, if I can make sense: If I upgrade to Photoshop 7 (with a legal upgrade disk), will I be able to use one of my older Photoshop disks in the OSX computer when I'm asked to put the disk in?

Photoshop 6 can only be used under OS X if you have OS 9 installed on a seperate paritition. If you do not want to have OS 9 installed, you need to use at least Photoshop 7 which works under OS X.
