    That's such a ramble I can hardly make sense of your problem.

    What I can tell you is hold the "c" key down to boot from the CD.

    I recommend you install OS9 again since it seems to have been corrupted. If there’s still a problem with booting, the advice to boot from the OS X install disk using the C key is a good one. Then just select your OS X install as startup again.

    It seems as though somehow your os 9 installation became corrupted. What you need to do is re-install it. To do this, insert your software restore or os 9 cd and boot from it by holding down the C key as the computer boots.

    Hope this helps.
