Hi, I have a G4 eMac (ATI), and I urgently need a boot CD. Can anybody give me an iso made in DasBoot (SubRosaSoft) or BBootCd (ChartlesSoft)? If not, is there any other CD available with a file manager on it (excluding Linux, as X.org doesn't work with my Radeon 7500)

EDIT: Thanks for all your help, my eMac is now working again, thanks to an OS 9.2 CD!

I believe the Mac OS X installer disc will allow you to interact with the file system via Terminal. Assuming you have one around, I would give that a try first.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I do not have OS X installation media. I do have access to a darwin terminal, but I am new to Mac and do not know how to use it.

I have the original eMac install discs for 10.3 plus iLife applications.

Could you link to them if they are online?

You are talking PC talk here, not Apple.

If you want my discs, I'll put them up in Marketplace for you to purchase. Make me an offer.

I'd only sell them in Marketplace. Most people don't know or don't remember that eMac OEM discs such as these are actually universal discs and can be loaded into any other Mac that will run Panther. I believe they come with iLife 05 in applications.
