Hi there ...

need latest version of ARA and OpenTransport urgently ... anyone know where to donwload? my friend need to have internet access and OS 9 Helper won't get my G4's OS 9.2.1 CD to install on his PowerMac 6200 ... so he was forced to use OS 8.6 (which upgraed from an incomplete 8.5 installation from the only incomplete OS 8.5 installer i have) ...

my G4's CD have version 2.7.7 (but not seperate installer) ... will 2.7.9 run on OS 8.6? where can i download it? also ... will ARA Client 4.0.2 on my G4's CD run on OS 8.6 with Open Transport 2.0 or later (which the installer require)?

Thanks in advance!

I would first try installing 8.6 updates instead of pulling separate part of 9.x and putting it into 8.6

so I was thinking you could start here to poke around for updates ftp://ftp.apple.com/Apple_Support_Ar...tware_Updates/

just use this link in your web browser and click on the language you want.
you could also start here:
ftp://ftp.apple.com/
then work your way in.

But this is a totally free apple update ftp server
and if you you like you can use a ftp client and just put in ftp.apple.com no user name or password.
