Good job coming here before you bought Pagemaker.
Pagemaker is a discontinued product. there will be no updates, and it
may or may not work on vista, depending on your luck.
There is a converter that will work on some older versions of publisher,
but the converted files tend to be a bit unstable, and the conversions
are never perfect. With a file that size that probably has thousands of
embedded images it would be a night mare.
Indesign is a better investment, there is a third party converter that
you can buy to convert publisher documents,

starting the catalog from scratch.
I'll second Jay's comments on both counts.
PM is dead and all but buried. Go with InDesign and you may want to
check into the various plugins available that can make catalog creation
quick and simple.
Yes, move straight to InDesign,
And may I say that CarBuilders is a terrific company, with great products, helpful staff on the phone and speedy delivery. I've bought many small things for my car from you!
Iechyd da! John

Many thanks Guys. It seems indesign is the way to go. I hope the converter plugin works OK or I can look forward to a long winter staring at a screen.
