    I booted up from the iMac OS 9.1 Install CD without a problem during startup. However, an error occurs during install and it quits. So I decided to drag the CD's system folder onto the hard drive. It works fine except that the Finder quits and eventually bombs me. I have three other systems, but I need to know how to have a stable install of OS 9.1 on my PowerBook 1400c. Help appreciated.

    Hmm... is your disc scratched at all? Also, how much RAM is installed?

    Also, do you have a 9.0 install disc? You could try that, and then use OS Helper to install 9.2.2

    When you boot from the OS 9 CD, try doing so with extensions disabled (holding down shift).
