I ran the Updater in OS9 and it told me my system was up to date. Where can
I download the updates you told me about?

OS 9.0.3 is perhaps _the_ buggiest version of OS 9 you can find :-(

However, good news. You can simply download the OS 9.1 (you may have
to d/l the 9.0.4 updater first) and update.

I would suggest the following update path:
9.0.3 -> 9.0.4
9.0.4 -> 9.1
9.1 -> 9.2.1

(yes, it's convoluted, but, that's the way things were back in the day).

As for your RAM... your machine can take (officially) up to 512 MB of
RAM (<http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=43099>) using 2 x
256 MB and unofficially
1 GB using 2 x 512 MB!
