So, somehow in Mac OS 9.2.1 I deleted my Apple Extras folder and no longer have access to Note Pad which I use all the time! :-(

I don't want to have to download & reinstall the 9.2.1 updater all over again, so is there any chance that a kind soul out there could make a copy of their Mac OS 9.2.1 Apple Extras folder and put it on their iDisk (or other site) for me to download? Please?
In Christ,

Did you check inside your "Applications (Mac OS 9)" folder?

Yuppers! I scoured through my folders and then used sherlock to no avail. I must have accisentally grabbed the folder when I was pruning my applications folder. Doh!

download tomeviewer from versiontracker and use it to open the system tome on your OS 9 CD. then extract the note pad application from the list... much easier than re-installing the entire OS!

The only problem is that I don't have a 9.2.1 disk, only a 9.0 and 9.2.1 is the version I need to have of my Apple Extras.

Hehe. I went up to my local Apple Stire and asked for the 10.1 upgrade disk since it comes with a 9.2.1 upgrade disk as well & got it of there. Yay! Thanks for the suggestions though!
