    Thank but that doesn't fix that.
    It doesn't want to start from 9.0.
    Doesn't want to boot from 10.2 CD
    all I get is a grey screen :(

    Should it even boot from 10.2 CD (came with my powermac)

    it will not boot with a CD that came from your PowerMac as that is designed to only boot up your system. Try booting up with the OS CD that came with the PowerBook.
