No, I said "zeroing" speeds it up IMMENSELY, not "erasing" OS9. You can
re-add OS9, but zero first. Perhaps you should give up the old wife's tale
and get ya some young tale to get you back up to speed ;-)

Actually, OS9 DOES slow things down, because of all the time it takes to
explain why ya still use it. :-)
