I have 9.1 on my hard drive. To install do I have to go to extensions 9.04 all or 9.04 base then install the update .And then go to my settings. extensions? The installer is not very clear on how to install. I have G4 450 dual with radeon agp retail card and 1 gig ram, confused.

Don't know if it matters. In the past I've used the updater no problem. But just boot using Mac OS Base. That should be fine. Otherwise, you might be able to boot using your OS 9 CD, then run the 9.1 updater.

No need to mess with settings in your extension manager, leave them on "my settings."
Try installing with extensions loaded. Drag the installer to the desktop first. If normal installation cannot proceed, restart holding "shift" key. This will boot with extensions off. Now install using installer on desktop.

Don't do it... I found the 9.1 updater horrible... ALL Apples OS updaters are... get the full disc somehow.

Anyway, 9.04 rocks.

yep, I somewhat agree. The updates are usually somehow not as good as the full install CD's. On most systems, 9.1 is better than 9.0.4, but I know any update gives some users headaches.

I disagree with you guys on this one. There may be problems with a 56k modem, but with DSL, I have found the Apple upgrade downloads to be, for the most part, quick and painless. And to work as expected afterwards.
And what is the alternative? Buy an update disk every time for more money? Don't make the update?
I guess I'm just glad I have DSL.

HOW you DL it has nothing to do with it.

The updates themselves suck.

No, don't get an update CD cause they suck too.

Buy the original version (9.0 for example), then pirate full versions of updates. Nothing wrong with that at all.
