will outline what you need to do to get 9.0.4 installed.

Now I regret it.
Anyway, I have an OS 8.5 System folder. I replaced the 7.5 with it.
Sheepshaver starts fine. Most things work. (The apple menu is empty.)
But the System Folder does not get its special icon. And when I shutdown
I get a warning that there is no valid System Folder, so that starting up
again may be impossible. But starting up again works.
So for now I'm staying with OS 7.5.
Another thing I did: I used Disk Utility to make a 1.5G .dmg file.
Copied the OS9 applications folder I had for Classic to it. Added it
as a second disk to SheepShaver. So now I can run other classic

will say it can't be opened. Ok that and close the folder. Does it now
have its special badge, i.e. is it "blessed"? If so, it should then
start up from that folder without problems. I'd only have one system
folder on a volume at one time, though.
