I think it sounds like you need a total re-install of your system. That¹s
what I would do in your case. If you want to bring your OS9 files to OSX you
need OSX native applications to do so. You didn¹t mention what apps they
were, but most have been ported to OSX. The ones that have not, you may be
able to ³save as² to a universal format. The password it asks for is the
admin password. If you forgot it you are out of luck. A clean install would
solve your problem. Just save all of your documents to a CD/DVD/external
hard drive first.
