    on an indigo you might you might not be able to run a hi-cap 2.5.

    try installing 9.1 first then 10.3 over it.

    you will want non-journaled probably too.

    To answer the question -- in Disk Utility, choose Erase, Mac OS Extended. If you are given the choice, check the box to say yes to OS9 boot resources as well.

    Then you can install an OS.
