I'm sure that somebody here can help, though I'm presently ripping hair out.
I've a G3 iMac 500MHz, 256MB RAM, 20GB HDD. I'm trying to get OS 9 installed on it, and no matter how I try, I cannot get the thing to boot to any of my OS 9 disks. If I boot hitting the Alt key, I have no options that include the OS 9 CD. I've tried booting into target disk mode, and installing to the Mounted HDD from my iBook G4 (Making sure to install the OS 9 Hard Disk Driver), but it didn't work. I can get the Mac to boot to a Tiger CD, but of 3 OS 9 CDs (9.0.4, and two 9.2.1 disks) the Mac simply doesn't recognise them.
Has anybody any ideas as to why I'm coming up against this problem?
Cheers in advance,
