It would help to know the specs of your computer.
If its not powerful enough to use OS X, then just keep using OS 9.

You shouldn't use OS X. These specs are not capable.
You need at LEAST 256mb of available RAM to use it under the worst circumstances.
And it looks like you mis-read something. There is no OS 9.4. Apple only released 9.2.2 and then they went to OS X.

Did you ever manage to find an adaptor?
