Even simplier

You can't do this nice trick if you don't have os9 installed
(Starting the os9-installer starts classic which needs os9 to run ...)

Make it simple :
Boot from your os9 install disk and use disk copy from there to create the image; then install os9 on this image ...
You don't need to use the terminal to bless this image (I think the installer does this ...)
Reboot from HD and do the steps 6, 7 and 8 from the tip ...

unless of course you don't have OS9 drivers on your hard disk

(because you replaced the crappy hard drive in your quicksilver G4 and then foolishly thought you wouldn't ever need classic again)

...then the OS9 CD can't see the drive to write the disk image there

who's got a solution for me?
