Subject: slightly Off-Topic: MacOS upgrade 8.5 to ???

I currently have YDL 2.0 and Mac OS 8.5 on a beige G3
with 352 MB but only a 6GB hard drive. One of my kids
new games needs at least Mac OS 8.6. I would like to
get this game working with the least effort possible -
I really don't want to have to do a clean install with
all the backups and restores and I especially do not
want to mess up the YDL side.
Should I just upgrade to 8.6 or should I go for
Is the best way to do such an upgrade to get CDs from
Apple or can I download the 34MB file which I found
for the 8.6 upgrade and do it locally?
Given my smallish hard drive and slowish processor
(266MHz I believe) I am under the impression that
upgrading to Mac OS X would not be advisable. Is this
correct? Would it mess up the Linux install if I did?
Would any of my Mac software stop working on OS X?
Any assistance/opinions are much appreciated.
