    I'm trying to install OS9 on a partition, but I loaned the OS9.2.2 install to...somone and I can't remember who. Anyway, does Apple have this available for download? I couldn't find it on their site. Frustrating.

    Stuck,

    the installer for the full OS is not available for download, only the updates. Apple only makes an OS freely avaialble after many years. I think system 7.5 is the latest freely available download.

    Apple also no longer sells OS 9 except to people who have purchased jaguar.

    YOu might want to check out one of these sites:

    Make sure you buy a retail CD (white with orange lettering) and not a model specific (orange or grey CD) that private parties often put up for sale (illegally I might add)
