I am having a lot of freezes and crashes on my G4 Mac with OS9 that has 1GB Ram and 450Mhz speed when I run LW7. That seems plenty of power to me. I do not do videos or motion, simply print only. At one time I moved an object and I did "not have enough memory".? I run the Norton disk doctor to fix but problems come right back. I upped the memory to no avail. Is there a known problem to run LW on the Mac?

Make a "defrag" and make sure that you have all the latest drivers! It might help.

If you ask the guys in the "LW Mac" forum they may be able to tell you why LW isn't working in OS 9. There doesn't seem to be a lot of support for using 3D apps in OS 9. Personally, I'd get my hands on Panther if I were you. OSX handles memory much more efficiently. LW is running nearly perfect on my OSX system.
