    I was looking on apple's site for update stuff. I noticed in the firmware update for a powerbook it said you must have OS9 to install. I was planning on doing a reformt on my new comp and not installing OS9 (PB 800). Do I need to leave os9 on so I can update firmware or will the newest version of Jaguar take of this?

    just do the firmware update before reformatting. once a firmware update is done, its done. You could replace the hard drive and it would still be there. Nothing short of a logic baord replacement or a flash update can reverse a firmware update.

    So if you already did it, nothing to worry about.
