    Ok guys im still new to the mac, so im stuck with my ibook not being able to boot. I installed Vampire: the masquerade on and tried it in classic mode and worked without a hitch. Then I decide to try it on OS9 and it worked last night but when I tried to boot up my computer today all i get is the image of a folder with a question mark and the two face image switching among themselves.

    Boot from an OS 9 CD (insert it, then hold down 'c' at startup). When you get to the desktop, if your HD doesn't show up, run Disk First Aid from the CD. That should fix it. If it does appear, drag 'Finder' And 'System' out of the System Folder. Drop them on the desktop, then put them back into System Folder. Make sure you select X (or 9) on your HD in the Startup disk control panel, and restart.

    Thanks for the info, will try that as soon as I can especially since now I have to use my brother's PC.
