What model PowerBook is it? Is the OS 8.6 system a retail version?

The last PowerBook G3 that will support OS 8.6 is the Lombard. If you have a Pismo (PB G3 Firewire) you will need OS 9. If you are using a computer specific disk not specific to the computer to which you are installing you will also get that response.
