Does anyone have this machine or happen to know--can the PowerCenter 150 take MacOS 9.0.4????? At the moment, I am running System 8.0. Thank you in advance for any help offered. GeneA

Thank you Misha
I am trying to do this updating/upgrading for a busy university prof, and I am short of time to do this for her, as I'm visiting from afar (she's in a *very* non-Mac university environment, and has 'minus-zilch' tech help!). So, a couple more questions since you are in the "know", obviously!!
(1) How much RAM is necessary for 9.0.4??? (I *might* have to settle for 8.1--she is running 8.0.)
(2) Is FWB HardDisk Toolkit Version 3 up-to-date enough for re-initializing the hard drive and starting from scratch, as she thinks is necessary?
(3) Does the PowerCenter 150 CD-ROM driver have to come from the original CD that came with her machine, or will FWB do the trick? Am I right that the Apple CD-ROM driver won't work?
(4) any other cautions/warnings of which I need to be cogniscent?
