    I need a bit of help. I just enrolled in a evening MBA program and of course they do not "officalyl" support Macs. Now this being said I am still going to try my best to just use my PowerBook and not resort to Virtual PC.
    My issue is that the software they use for communication and handing in assigments only runs in OS 9. Now I have OS 9 running on my OS X 10.4.4 install, and I even have their client installed, but I do not seem to have any networking stuff setup in OS 9. I have ZERO expereince with OS 9, how do you go about getting networking, specficially an Internet connection, working under OS 9 emulation in OS X? Please Help?!?!?

    If you have OS X networking set up and working then the networking in Classic should just happen. I've just started classic and run the OS 9 version of Internet Explorer to access some internet sites without any problems.

    If you have OS X networking set to do something like automatically connect to the internet when you load a page then you may need to ensure that you first load a page in OS X to ensure that your network connection is established before using the MBA software. Another alternative is that you have a firewall that is interferring with the MBA software connection to the network. Try turning off the OS X firewall and ensure that any hardware firewall, such as your router, are not blocking traffic.

    Actually, I have a similar question. I have two Classic machines and I have them setup for networking, but, I can't get the server to show up in the Chooser! And there is no "add" button.

    For the OP - just go to Apple -> Chooser -> and click the button that says something like "find Server" or something, then just type in your IP for your server! :)
