Hi. I suspect the RAM on an OS 9 iMac may be going. What can I do to test the RAM for errors? Is there a version of memtest86 for OS 9?

can't you just put in the Apple Hardware CD and boot to it ? it will scan all the hardware including memory test's

I would suggest RAMometer (you can find it here). It found bad RAM that even Apple's hardware tests CDs didn't see.
