I made a clean install of my 9.1. Now I have installed all my USB stuff (printer, scanner, digital camera and CDR) and everything is running OK, not a crash...
And I'm feeling great without any Microsoft applications... I'm using iCab and Eudora... but, I need a word processor, advices?!?!

AppleWorks, or Corel WordPerfect, er you could also use MS word. I feel it is still the Best Package out there. Or you could wait til Star Office for Mac is released

Who is producing Star Office? Do they have any public beta out there yet? Got a link?

I think StarOffice is a Sun Microsystems product. Check their web page!

I've been using Mac OS 9.1 continuously since it was released, and at first everything was fine. Now, my machine crashes many times a day. I've been trying to find a thirdparty extension that causes conflicts, but haven't found it. It crashes most often in iCab Pre2.4 and AppleWorks 5 (the programs I use the most).

I guess it started being crashy after I installed Novell Netware client (5.13).

Jeronimo...
Thanks for the tip. Search of their web site revealed it. Very interesting concept: web-based OFFICE suite of apps. Have to wait till I have some time on my RoadRunner connection to explore it. It's got to have good interface with formats that I'll be using when off-line.

Hmr...
Sounds like an important observation!
I've taken to keeping a folder with a log of each new app/extension I install and system change I make -and when- to help me figure out future buginess. The CPU beneath my balding pate is attached to far too volatile a RAM module to rely on it to remember the changes I made since my last stable system

Well, they finally got the all-in-one download of the 9.1 upgrade up and I downloaded it using a T-1 connection. Now do I dare disturbe the universe and upgrade? The G-4 dual this would be on is being used as a web page and database server. Have had few problems with 9.0, except the random crash a few times a week. Would 9.1 reduce or increase the frequency of crashes? Any other advantages to the upgrade?

hmr, 9.1 has dramatic OT changes, which explains why NOVEL extension may be the cause.
