is there some dock program out there for mac os 9 other than a-dock that i can use? i'm looking for something that i can put on the side of the screen insead of the bottom and that can minimize on its own. a-dock didn't do any of these things. i need this since i like to surf the web and use aim at once, but it's inconvenient for me to go through the finder bar and get to aim when mozilla is open. i've become used to the dock in os x and wondered if there were something that performed just like it.

Command-Tab

Why not just use Command-Tab (or AppleKey-Tab) for application switching, if that's all you need? It's already built into Mac OS 9.2

Or better yet, get Lite Switch from Proteron. It can replace the OS 9 Command-Tab function (which I always thought was pretty useless) with something much more akin to the OS X Command-Tab function.

Also, for OS 9, there is CMTools, which greatly expands the usefulness of the OS 9 contextual menus. Very customizable.

Gosh; I'd forgotten about some of the dandy utilities that I used in OS 9. Sigh.
