This may or may not help.
If the iMac running OS 9 is working, but the specific program that was doing it's scheduled task is not:
Make sure you have quit that program. Open your System folder for OS 9. Open the Preferences folder. Locate the Preference folder or document for that specific program. Remove it from the Preferences and System folder, but do not trash it.
Try opening the program, it should regenerate a new Preferences file.
It's been a long time since I used OS 9. I can remember having a program quit running because the preferences file for that program got corrupted.
If it doesn't help, return the old Preferences file for that program back to it's original place.
