Powermac G4 Digital Audio Mac OS 9 Disks

Hi everyone Smile
I recently purchased a Powermac G4 467MHz Digital Audio, it is currently running Mac OS 10.4.11.
I would like to install Mac OS 9.2.2 so I can load on all my vintage apps+games to serve over the network to my ethernet enabled macs. The issue I'm having is that none of my Mac OS 9 disks will work, I have tried 9.0.4, 9.1, 9.2.1 all of which show up a floppy disk with a ?. I know these disks work since I used them on my old iMac G3. So my ? is does anyone have the original Mac OS 9 disk images for the G4 Digital Audio that they could upload or send to me?

Thanks

The MDD OS9.2.2 disk image will do the job. That's what I used on my DA dual 533.

But, I too, would like someone to post images of the original media that came with this Mac. The DA was extremely popular, so there must be a large number of sets of original discs out there.

Thanks @bertyboy I found this... http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/macintosh-system-922-1021-power-macintos...

I downloaded Mac OS 9 MDD DMG and just copied the files from the DMG into my spare 30gb hdd on the g4 and it booted into mac os 9.2 straight away.
