Hello Anny and Everyone!

If we can get a version that works for older operating systems that
will be great, but there is no question that if you were running Mac

your files up, by placing them on a separate hard drive. Then install
Mac OS X, and then once it is running, you can install all your old
Mac OS 9 software in the Mac Classic section of the computer and you
