PGP 5 is horrible broken and has major problems to comply with
OpenPGP. The latter is obvious because OpenPGP was released later.
There are also a couple of security issues with PGP versions before
6.5.8 - so your partner should update. If he has created keys under
GNU/Linux with that version it is even worth to think of replacing

I have been told that PGP 7 is OpenPGP compatible so it should
indeed work. Well, you can't get the source for it so there is no
easy way to check whether some problems have been addressed.
