I have a PowerBook M7572 (400MHz/64MB/10GB). I'm running OS 9.2.

When try to boot normally I get an error message "Sorry, a system error occurred. illegal instruction To temporarily turn off extensions, restart and hold down the shift key." There is a "Restart" button.

If I try to start with extensions off I get the same as above. I tried to boot off of the CD to reinstall the OS. If I hold down the 'C' key it does not boot off of any CD. (I have tried several bootable CD's)

I tried rebuilding the desktop and zapping the PRAM. Nothing seems to help. Any ideas?
