Apple Remote Desktop is good and will do what you want. Timbuktu will 
do the same and I like it a little better under OS X although I have 
had some stability problems in OS 9 and earlier.

You must have an interesting setup to have a closet full of Macs.

Remember that any Mac which can boot in X can also boot into 9 (at 
least until next month when Apple introduces some new models which 
won't boot into 9 any longer). Even under X, Classic applications can 
still run.
