    Thanks, Cathy.

    What you mean by 'unsupported computer'?

    I installed O.S. 9 from an Apple c.d. and then upgraded to 9.1 and 9.21
    from the two c.d.s I got from Megamacs.com.

    I tried downloading Disk First Aid 8.61 from the Apple site.

    Although the site's read me file says Disk First Aid i8.61 s for 9.x,
    when I tried to install the program, a message said it's only good for
    9.04 or 9.1, and that I should cleanly install my system or install onto
    another disk.

    OS 9.2.x is only supported on computers capable of running OS X. Apple does not
    support it on, for example, PowerPC 604 machines or earlier.
     

    Disk First Aid should have been installed when you installed OS 9.2. 8.6.1 is
    the correct vesion for 9.2.1 and 9.2.2.

    I downloaded a copy of 8.6.1 from the Apple site and decompressed it as
    you suggested. After doing that, a Disk First Aid folder appears. The
    folder contains three files, including one called "Installer".
     

    It appears that the copy of Disk First Aid 8.6.1 I downloaded from the
    Apple site may have been damaged, as you said. Since I wrote last about
    this issue here, I found a copy of Disk First Aid 8.6.1 hidden in the
    Utilities folder, which is in the Applications folder. That copy works,
    while the one I downloaded from the Apple site still doesn't work.

    Thanks, Tacit and David or Jo Anne. Now I know which version is the
    correct one to use.
