Hmm I think I understand, when you reinstall the system with the LC PDS card installed the drivers will be loaded automatically.

Will the installation get rid of my files or is there like OS repair feature
Depends on the installation option you select, clean install will rename your old system file but keep it intact. A straight install will overwrite the old system but problem is it may also keep old extensions and control panels depending on what is on the Mac currently.

Correct the current commercially available version is only for OS X. You would have to find the free older version. Have you tried Google?

On the other hand, Appleworks is included on OS9 and might be backwards compatible.

CW2/3 was bundled with a lot of flavors of macs too.

Unfortunately the newest OS that his LC 575 will run is OS 8.1.....

and the retail installation disk for OS 9 does not contain Appleworks.

Only installation disks for specific Macs such as the iMacs etc came with software reinstallation disks which may include other programs.

Found this by doing a google search on OS 8.1 upgrade...

Apple - Support - Discussions - 8.1 Upgrade ...

The 8.1 upgrade was a free download from Apple most of the Mac magazines of that time frame who had cover CD's had copies as well.

What is the name of the file? Is it stuffed or a binary?
