You could probably run the Panther version of packagemanager, but
you'll hit another problem: AFAIK, no one is updating the package
lists anymore, so at best you'll only get old versions of software,
and at worst you'll get nothing (if the data is pointing at
formerly-correct but now-dead URLs).
Your best bet is to first of all get the packages you can from Bob's
site (http://pythonmac.org/packages/), and get used to using the
command-line to install anything else you need.
