Hi thanks a lot for the information. So in fact Mac OS 9 must support
"New World" otherwise it wouldn't be able to install at all. The
salesman who sold me this notebook 4 years ago said it can run mac OS 9,
so it should support New World. I have the discos with me so I'll try a
bit later.

Thanks.
