    So I happened to stumble across an OS 9 disk and it boots and all on my iBook clamshell. Just when I get to the screen where I choose what HD to install it on, there is 'no peripherals'. Any ideas?

    Use the Disc Utility

    This happened to me too. I ended up going through the disc and reformatting it with the disc utility located in the utilities application folder. Once i did that the install was able to recognize the HD.
