My search has found:

    Dreamweaver 4 Installer                  14.6 megs
    Dreamweaver 4.01 updater               5.8 megs
    Dreamweaver Bible                           8.9 megs
    Fireworks 4 Installer                         17.3 megs
    Fireworks 4.0.2 updater                     1.6 megs

They are untested by me. Are these what you are looking for?  I can't imagine any use for them today.

If they are what you want, please give me u/l instructions. I believe they are too big to u/l here.

Hi mate,  superb and many thanks. 

Ill tell you why and you will laugh.  I want to build an old school website.  Not a modern wordpress thing with a 'vintage' skin made yesterday.  But a dreamweaver site made in . erm  pre 2005! 

Hey my phones a Nokia and it has snake on it!   No im not antient, well I am to my daughter, im 39,  just the more and more the years tick by the more and more I want to immerse myself in the 90s. 

I have no idea about uploading and such?  I have Utorrent. Erm, sorry im not great with such things. 

Thanks very much again

EDIT  Are you sure they cannot be uploaded here?  I downloaded Pro Tools videos and they were a gig.  Just if it saves you any bother.

id be interested in testing out to see just how obsolete dreamweaver is;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Dreamweaver

i worked extensively with the macromedia versions; but not so much with the Adobe versions;
im wondering if they updated dreamweaver past "MX 2004" version? they had to of; but probably not for mac os 9?

Hi Macstuff. 

DW4 was the last for OS9.

Its funny the two of you both mention about how obsolite this program (oops, sorry 'app' we have to call things now) may/will be.   Isnt that the whole point of an OS9 forum?

My studio engineer and for him time is money wouldnt thank you for an OS9 mac with an 'antient' version of Pro Tools on it.  He wants the latest with all the features and updates and customer support.  Yet a ton of people on here seem to be using Po Tools.  I mean if a 15 year old version of anything isnt obsolite then im no sure what else to call it. 

For myslef, I just really prefered things back then.  This is reflected in what I do and what I use in my music studio.  I dont think I own anything after 2005.  75% of it must be from the 90s.  I just dont feeel like I need all the latest and greatest stuff.  Great music was released back then also, meaning we had what we needed. But Id guess if I told anyone I used an Akai sampler and an Alesis HD24 they would think they were obsolite too.  They are I guess.  But that makes me the most creative.

Reason I want to use DW is to make an old school style web site.  Like they dont have anymore.  I know its crazy to most but then most are crazy to me.  Buying units that spy on their every word (Alexia) and staring into these phones all day and night (My phone has snake on it, its an original nokia,  never felt the need for a 'smart' phone ever, I got what I need and had it over 15 years on my obsolite phone)

proper html 4 code is not becoming obsolete so soon. plus you can always create your own objects/plug-ins in programs like this if you think something is missing. not sure if you would be able to recreate all parts of css3 overnight but in theory it is doable.
