ok, a friend recently gave me an old iMac G3 and it has no OS on it. i have a general OS9 CD (as in not a device specific CD) and the iMac cant/wont boot from this CD. when i put that CD into my OSx86 machine it pops up and shows all the seemingly correct directories etc. i'm guessing that for some reason this disc is no longer bootable. is there a way to some how get this CD on a hard drive or USB flash drive so i can install OS9?


i have held down the option key to select boot device and the CD does not show up


the CD-ROM in the iMac is working i have run an ubuntu live CD to verify it works and it does


any help would be great! thanks!!
