    I couldn't seem to find that info on the Apple site. Are they the same as the OSX only 1.25s in terms of features or would I be paying a few hundred extra dollars for less features? Although I don't want to pay for it, I probably need it, so any info would be great. Thanks.

    I don't believe so, only the OSX-only bootables come with FW800, sorry.

    I know vniow already said some words, but I thought it was worth confirming that mine doesn't.

    Careful.......you probably will run into driver problems if you try to use FW800 in OS 9, as it was never supported.

    It's still worth a try though.

    Wow, good point. I think I'll check into that. I was on the verge of getting a FW 800 card and a a new Lacie drive specifically for OS9's music app on my old G4. Could have been a stupid (and expensive) move!
