try resetting the pram: hold down command-option-p-r after turning on till your hear it chime again.

Thank but that doesn't fix that.
It doesn't want to start from 9.0.
Doesn't want to boot from 10.2 CD
all I get is a grey screen :(

Should it even boot from 10.2 CD (came with my powermac)

it will not boot with a CD that came from your PowerMac as that is designed to only boot up your system. Try booting up with the OS CD that came with the PowerBook.
