    Don't you have to do a firmware update to go from 9 to 9.1?

    Can't remember now.

    Confused though, are you running OS9 only?

    im not sure, im a pc guy and its my gfs computer and i know nothing about mac computers at all.
    i went to the startup disk and it says MAC OS X, 10.4.11 on untitled, idk what that means but i just want to figure out how to update this so i can run classic

    My only real recommendation is to let your girlfriend know she needs a new computer...almost 10 years is a long time for a computer ;)

    Apple pulled classic support with 10.3 I think. All I know is that under 10.4.11 your girlfriend can not run classic. Also I don't know why she would want to. Any development for OS 9 stopped almost 8 years ago.
