    So I just made a forum account on the site 'macos9lives.com'...yeah, I know what you're thinking. If you have an account then you get access to God's only MacOS 9 disk images. This is the only place I could find them online. I have an OS9 disc but it's for a select amount of Apple computers. I am trying to install MacOS9 on my PowerMac 4400/200. After downloading, I realize that the disk image is too large to fit on my 700MB CD, and I obviously cannot put it on a DVD since my Mac has no DVD-ROM drive. I tried to resize the image, however the smallest it could downsize it to was still over 700MB. Does anyone know of a small enough MacOS9.dmg that I can burn to a 700MB CD? I considered copying the system files to the disc, but I doubt that will make it bootable. I have about two CDs left and don't want to take chances. Anybody have a clue? I either need a solution or a .dmg that's not so large. Thanks.

    Where did you get your images from? I'd like an image like that.

    This thread is starting to go into discussions of piracy. Piracy is not allowed on MacRumors.
