If you end up NOT upgrading the CPU(note that it was not designed to be user-upgradeable and current Sonnets are in the $50+ range),get OS 8.6, as it is really stable and fits most requirements for various CD programs.

If you upgrade the CPU, you should go with OS 9.

My specs of my 5500/250 are:
64 MB ram
10-BASE-T Ethernet
S-Video Card
AV Card
Default HD
OS 8.6

Plus, I have an external ZIP 100 drive and a 4x4x16 external rewritable drive.

I personally feel you shouldn't have to upgrade from here, but if you seriously want to, go ahead.

I actually got my 5500 for free too from my school.
