the ROMs from a real computer. By the time MacOS 9 came out the ROMs
were so far out of date that Apple stopped using them for anything
except booting. They included a replacement ROM image on the
installation disks and loaded it at boot time.
If you want to find one, look on a MacOS 9 CD, which due to
Sheepshaver limitations should be 9.0, 9.01 or 9.04.
