I've spent almost all day trying to get Panther on my iMac G3 (tray loading, 266MHz) and I got all the firmware updated and got it to os 9.2.2. I put in the Panther disk and rebooted. I partitioned the drive so that one was less than 8 GB and started the installation. A couple minutes in, I decided to open the installer log. It froze up for a while and then put up a blue scree with a spinning loading indicator for about 5 minutes until the cd stopped spinning. I couldn't turn it off with the power button so I had to pull out the power. Now when I boot up it works for a while and then the blue screen comes back. After about 10 minutes the screen goes black and the power button turns amber. Is there something I'm doing wrong? EDIT: Okay I just reset the PRAM and the same happened. I'm SOOOOO pissed. I've had this iMac for almost two years now and I've been trying to install OS 8 or 9 so I could get to 10 but it just HAS to stop working now.
