can anyone tell me the different platforms on which mac OS 9 will work? eg. whether it works on G3 or G4 etc plus all the variations of these (G3 or G4) on which these work.
i want to write a driver for third party pci card. so i would like to know the Hard disk limitation which i have to keep in mind while writing the driver for G3 or any other platform on which mac os 9 will run.
also whether mac OS 9 support ATAPI devices.

If you are including Classic support in OSX, then G3, G4, G4, and PPC processors will need to be supported. If you mean only machines that will boot in OS9, cut the G5 and some of the G4 machines. Check out www.lowendmac.com and browse the system requirements for older machine.
