This is great for those people who have machines that, as the page says, don't allow normal CD installs. ... I'm not one of those people, but I'm still trying the TiBook extraction image on my iBook G3/500.

Thank you! This is exactly what I needed to get Mac OS 9.2.2 and all the hardware drivers for my PowerBook G4 A1025 867MHz. I mounted the .toast file using OS X 10.5.8 and it claimed the image was damaged, but you can ignore the warning and copy the files anyway.

Thank you so much for posting these. I have a 1GHz TiBook and have found the OS 9 install process to be a nightmare every time I have to clean install. Your extracted folder worked perfectly the first time, and is much faster than an install off a disc anyway (I install by mounting the Toast image on one machine, then copying the files to the TiBook 1GHz in Firewire Target Disk Mode). Thanks again!

I have taken the liberty of adding the OS9 folders from the TiBook Restore DVD I have here since my previous effort had a number of corrupted files on it. I do not have the time at the moment to perform extensive testing on it so if anyone detects any issues with it, please let me know and I will address those as soon as I can. From what I can see it seems OK.

The toast image was created on OS9 with Toast 5.2.3 and stuffed with Stuffit 7.0.3 to preserve resource forks.

One time, I actually used something like this to install 9.2.2 on an iMac G3 when I wanted to update it a little bit, and it actually worked Smile
