Hi. I have a Wordbook G3 Pismo
Mac OS 9
400Mhz
1MB Cache
64MB
6GB HD
8MB Video/DVD

I have the new OS .iso file in the CD drive but cannot boot it for some reason. Holding down "C" does nothing. New to Mac's here. Thanks all.

I dont have the original disc

I dont have the original disc of OS9. So I obtained a .dmg image of the disc and tried to boot that.

Ideally I would like to partition the hard drive and duel boot with ubuntu. How is it possible to have the Mac recognize the .dmg image of the Mac OS9 disc? I want to be able to get into disk setup and initialize the partition process.
