Well I *think* Squeak 3.8.9beta7 was the last os-9 based VM. It might  
run under os-7.5.5 which was the earliest OS tested, mind 7.6.1 was a  
bit better.
Personally I found os-9.x way more stable but I'm not sure if this is  
an option for you.

You should look at the 3.8.x Release Nodes.rtf via
and decide which VM version might be best for you.
