Yes, I run Darwin 1.2.1 because I have to use a PM 8600/250. I already 
tried to upgrade to Darwin 1.3.1. So I downloaded the installer from 
Apple, trashed the previously installed Darwin 1.2.1 and put Darwin 1.3.1 
on that partition. But I wasn't able to get this thing to boot. I tried 
different ways to achive that goal (I used for instance Startup Disk 9.2.1 
(from Darwin 1.3.1), System Disk (version 2.6.2 downloaded from Apple as 
version 3.3), System Disk 3.1 (from Darwin 1.2.1) with different results 
(from absolutely nothing (just OS 9 rebooting) over Open Firmware prompts 
to unability to boot at all - Command-Option-P-R)). I have asked Questions 
about this on address@hidden and (as I got no answer 
there) on address@hidden: again no answers. So I have 
to wait for a possible working Update (maybe Darwin 1.3.2) and to use 
until then Darwin 1.2.1 (I am not happy about this) - if such a Update 
ever will come.
