    Hello All,
    Upon starting up, my G3 Blue/White running 9.2 shows a flashing Question Mark and a folder. I guess this means it cant find the start-up disc? I tried booting from the G3 CD-Rom for G3 holding down Command C. It didnt work. Anybody have any ideas on how I can get it running again?

    PS. Luckily, in anticipation of receiving my new G5 2.5, (which Ive been waiting forever for) I backed-up all my files. Still it would be nice to have my G3 working so I can give it to someone to use. Thanks all.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Generally, that's an indication of missing software but since it didn't start from the CD-ROM, it could be that the battery for the CMOS memory containing your settings has gone flat.
