Firstly, I would like to thank you and all who took the trouble to answer my query and bring me up to date with the features offered by gpg-1.0.3. As happens with depressing frequency, after sending the request for help, I located, downloaded and read the .pdf manual that spells out the acrobatics that used to be necessary in order to get gpg to work with PGP 2.x keys. It is good to know that the information in the manual is largely superseded. The downloaded manual also gave full details on installing the idea module; so I will be able to follow the above advice when the need arises.
