    Never mind about the first question. I am guessing it is because of a bad PRAM battery or something like that.

    My only concern now is, will Mac OS 9 install on a hard drive that does not have OS 9 drivers? :confused:

    It should...you'll most likely have to do a clean install if you're wanting to do it as your main os, otherwise X will just install 9 as the background client to allow os9 software to run.

    Oh:

    Okay... Perhaps I wasn't using the correct CD. I am cleaning today, and found a different CD.
