I have a new Powerbook that came loaded with OS 9 pre-installed.

So far, let me say, that OS9 seems to be the most stable OS I have ever used. Then again, it seems my luck runs opposite of everyone else's. I loved 7.6 on an LC 630. I hated a very crash prone OS 8.1 on and iMac Rev A. OS 8.5.1 has been more stable on the iMac. On my new Powerbook, I can safely say that I have had only one feeeze that required a force restart.

Anyway...

According to the Powerbook G3 Series Read Me dated September 28, 1999, there should be a USB Devices folder in the Apple CD Extras fold on the OS Install CD-ROM. It ain't there.

What's going on?

I'm guessing Apple forgot to update the ReadMe to take into account the MacOS 9.0 CD. It's likely just an editorial oversight.

However, the Read Me discusses several OS 9 topics. Checking some more, I found reference to this folder in the Mac Help Center.
