    Hi all,

    I'm trying to upgrade my iMac G3 400MHz with OS X 10.3 over OS 9.0.4, but I'm prompted to upgrade my Firmware which is currently 3.3 to 4.1.9.

    When I try to upgrade to 4.1.9 I get prompted that the firmware update will only run on OS 9.1 or later.

    Is there anyway around this???

    PLZ can anyone suggest un easier way than having to find a version of OS 9.1, install that then install OS X!!!

    Thanks in adv!!!

    Duff-Man says....the update to 9.1 (or 9.2.x for that matter) is free and is no trouble to download and install, and is needed/recommended if you want to run classic under os x. You can get it from here ...oh yeah!
