Hmmm.... thats a good point.

I have a couple older Pre-G3 macs that I was going to tinker with....  
I also was instested in Sheepshaver as well...  And Possible running a  
classic Environment in OSX..

So from what I gather - I would need two versions.  9.0.4 for  
Sheepshaver, and at least 9.1 for classic in OSX.
