I am trying to load Tiger onto my iMac snow using my iBook G4's drive.
I've only got OS 9.2 on the iMac now.
First, I've forgotten my 'admin' password and can only access my boys accts.
Do I need to reload OS 9.2? Which I've tried but am unable to do. I've tried the option key but it will not show my OS 9 or the X upgrade disk. It will show my Norton disk (it is a valid startup disk) What am I missing?

Second, I don't see either HD on the others desktop (through firewire). Do I need to network them? I have never tried it.

Thanks for any help.
QUOTE Thanks
