Sage just released program fixes to allow Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 (works with Extended Enterprise) to print the new 941 forms for 2009.
Unlike prior years, these fixes are not in the form of an official IRD (aka Interim Release Disk). Instead the program fixes have been added to the service update releases for versions 4.1+.
You can also download individual fixes (helpful for those using third party add-ons or Extended Solutions that may not play well with the latest update).

Here are the most direct links for the latest 941 updates.
Option one – for those on MAS90 or MAS200 version 4.1+
Download the latest service update – this contains all the 941 form changes plus NJ payroll tax changes.
The new 941 layout (as well as tax law changes required for payroll users in New Jersey) may be downloaded as part of a complete service update package.
Note: Service Updates are only issued for versions 4.10 and higher of Sage MAS 90 and 200. Consult your Sage Business Partner prior to applying service updates. Be sure to have a backup. Always eat your vegetables. Your mileage may vary. Void if spindled, mutilated or tag is removed from mattress.
Option two – download the individual program fixes
If you’re unable to download a complete service update because you’re on a version where the update isn’t available or you have modifications that might not work with a service update you can download each fix individually.
Here are direct links to the individual program fixes – for versions 3.71 to 4.30
