I saved the 9.0.4 updater files from way back. I had them stuffed on a CD, but when I expand the files and run the updater, I am told it can't continue because it cannot find
Drive Setup and that I should be sure I am using the original CDs.
How can I get around this? Are they talking about the original install CDs? or some original updater CD. I didn't have this problem back when I had originally updated to 9.0.4.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The original 9.04 updater has a copy of Drive Setup in the Utilities folder. Try mounting the SMI image and then running the updater from that rather then putting everything on your hard disk.
