I have an iMac G3 700 Mhz SE model. I've heard it is possible to boot natively into Mac OS 9 on this machine, as well as OS X.


I currently have Mac OS 10.2.8 Jaguar installed and running on Partition 1. I now need to install Mac OS 9.1 on Partition 2. I am currently unable to do this; caught in some kind of software loop.


Can anyone tell me the procedure to install Mac OS 9? I have a legitimate Apple copy of the OS 9 Disc, and also a legit copy of the 2 Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar Discs. I also have some iMac Restore Software and iMac Install Software Discs from an older G3/500 Mhz that I own.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
