yes it will like ,this one too
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Apple-Mac-OS-9...item27aec226cf

both look like retail disc to me , as they look like the one i have , so its just popping it in the drive and install , so first make absolute sure with your seller that its not just the media booklet , as some on ebay just sell the booklet but without the actual cd, the one i found is the real thing for sure

There are still legitimate reasons to use Mac OS 9, if you have a Mac old enough to support it. For instance: Porting a Mac OS 9 application that never made the Mac OS X transition to Mac OS X (usually such ports are unofficial, and done without source code). It just so happens that I'm doing one of these.
