Sounds like, All those experts only know Mac OSX... Mac OS 9 is nothing like OS X :p

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.
