I forgot what the procedure was for a non-booting old clam shell iBook. I reset the PR Ram... removed the battery, and put it back in. The system showed the 'non system folder' signs. I turned it on it blinked the system folder and the '?' sign pictures. Apple provided no support for Os 9 at all do they now? Lets see... I reset PRRAM and I tried booting off a CD... uh... Anything? Thanks people.
