I need NEWBIE advice!



I was just given an iMAC G3, 350, slot loader. I uprgaded to firmware 4.1.9f1 and am running OS 10.2. I had trouble the other day when it auto updated online. When it finished optimizing and then restarted, my display was black. I managed to install previous firmware and reinstall OS 9. Then upgrade as I described above. I have not updated online yet and there is about 200MB of data. My boot ROM is 4.1.9f1. My question is: is this the latest firmware and what do I need to do before updating online to avoid previous problems? Since I'm new to MACS, any help you can give is appreciated in advance. So far I like what I'm seeing; but I'm afraid the updates will crash it again.
