I have a question on OS and software upgrades plus the correct installation steps.
Not having used my Cube for about 6 years (shame on me I know) I would like to get it functional for web browsing, email, storage and stuff like that.
It works, its up and running and with some help already its now connected to the internet but difficult to browse or read sites etc. (Internet Explorer 5 and Netscape 6.1 are currently installed). I guess the OS and browser software may not be compatable for today. My understanding is that it is necessary to upgrade the OS to a minimum of 9.2.1 in order to support modern devices and browsers?
I do not have the original OS disks should anything go wrong, but I would like to make the appropriate upgrades where possible.

System Profile reads:
OS: 9.1 US
Processor Info: PowerPC G4
Machine speed: 450 MHz
Built in memory: 320 MB
Disk cache: 8160K
Hard Drive capacity: 19GB
Internal RAM capacity: 16.24MB

I don't mind installing some H/W updates if required, but I'd prefer not to invest $$$$ and risk the consequences of my other half beating it to the nearest Apple Store to buy the latest and greatest.

Thanks for any assistance.
