    for 8.6? I have no idea - that's extremely old. Once you upgrade to OS 9 you can have iTunes?

    I'm pretty sure that os 9 had a really primitive version of iTunes, but I could be wrong. Either way, I'm sure OS 9 has a media player of some kind.

    If you can find it. SoundJam is what you are looking for. It's by Ambrosia software and was the best MP3 player pre-iTunes. It had skin support and playlist capabilities. If you can find it you'll be in good hands. There was MacAmp as well, but it was kinda lame.

    EDIT:
    Here it is.

    And yes iTunes was introduced in Mac OS Classic. It was about the only program I recognized when I upgraded to OS X. You can find that here:

    Well I know I have a copy of SoundJam back home. Which is 5,000 miles away... Oh well.

    But SoundJam was by Casady & Greene, not Ambrosia, so long ago I forgot. I did find a copy of IE 5, and probably won't crash your computer.

    It appears to work.

    Just use an old version of iTunes. SoundJam was bought by Apple and turned into iTunes, so they are similar programs in function. The interfaces are a bit different though.
