In future, you might like to try this...
1. Insert the Mac OS 9 Installer CD into your drive, Press and Hold C when you power up.
2. Once the Mac has started, go into the Disk Tools
and open the Drive Utility
, before you Initialize the new drive, be sure to check the box that says 'Install Mac OS 9 Drivers'.
3. Now your disk should be prepared for OS 9... continue with the install, choosing your external drive as the destination.
