    I Have just been pondering about putting 10.4.11 back on my iMac G4 (in sig) on a separate partition so I can run classic mode (only really to play about with) but right now I'm with out a system file. Until I looked on some old system disc which are for an earlier model of the iMac G4 (probably a 2002 model because they are os9 and osx 10.1.2) anyway I have included a screen shot of the contents of the disc and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the system folder would work before I go and install tiger. (before any one asks that screen shot is from my mbp because I still haven't got around replacing the disc drive on the iMac G4, I just use a firewire 800 to 400 cable)

    Many thanks

    I believe you have to use an installed System Folder - the System Folder on the CD is very basic and doesn't suffice.

    I don't think I can do that because my imac G4 being a 1.25Ghz can't boot natively into os9.

    That looks very interesting if quite long lol thanks for that.
