I have a Digital Audio G4 with a Sonnet Crescendo CPU upgrade (1.7GHz), 1.5GB RAM, and an ATI Radeon 9000 Mac Edition video card.

I couldn't get 9.2 to work for the longest time on this thing - 9.1 ran fine, but as soon as I upgraded to 9.2, the machine would lock up right before loading the desktop.

Removing the Multiprocessor folder from the System folder fixed this. However, I can't put the machine to sleep. The error I get is:

Your computer can't sleep because some system software is missing. Reinstall the software that came with your computer.
It's not a huge deal, and if the tradeoff for getting 9.2 to work is that I'll lose sleep capability, I'll live. I'd like to get it working if I can, though.

Secondly, the internal speaker doesn't work in OS 9.2. It was working in 9.1, and it works before 9.2 boots (e.g. there's a boot chime). I hooked up a USB speaker in the meantime, and it works fine.
Sell or send me your vintage Mac things if you don't want them.

Wowzers. This is some old stuff I've got to pull out of my head. I'll get back to you.
