9.0 or 9.0.4? English (US), English (UK)? Z (English everywhere else),
or any number of foreign languages.

To run native on a specific computer (e.g. iMac G3), generic (retail),
or "Classic Mode" (under OSX)?

I have mostly US retail and specific, at least one UK, one Hebrew and a
DVD for installing many different languages under Classic.

Note that no version can be downgraded, e.g. 9.1 can not be downgraded
to 9.0.4 (needed for SheepShaver), but any version can be upgraded in
steps, 9.0 to 9.0.4, either to 9.1, 9.1 to 9.2 and 9.2 to 9.2.1 and 9.2.1
to 9.2.2.

Hardware specific versions can not be ungraded either, you can't convert
an iMac G3 install disk (originaly grey) to a retail (originaly white) disk.
