    I had to boot into OS 9 so i could play some playstation games on vgs and when i changed to boot to OS 9 it freaked out and i get a folder with a question mark. So heres my problem i have no osx cd becuase the ones apple sent me are dead (already called them and im getting new ones) and i dont want to wait to get it fixed... Is there any way i can get back into OS X with out reinstalling it?

    Did you install OS and 9 on different disks or partitions?
    If so then just press the <ALT> key during boot to let Apple's boot manager let you switch.

    Hold the 'Option' key at the 'bong' and see what your boot choices are.

    Seems like this question mark of death is forming a common theme. Boot into 9= Computer crash.
