    transfer OS 9 from PB to another PB
    OK I have spent 24 hours trying to change the name of my HD on a older G4 PB 400mhz no luck. lots of help and great suggestions but no joy. Any further wisdom see "Changing HD icon name"

    How can I transfer OS 9 from my PB to my kids PB so they can play soem of the games that are Xmas presents that only work in classic.

    A 'genius' from the LA store said start PB (b) holding down L key. No luck any thoughts?

    Do you have OS X on the 400MHx PB? Doesn't OS X have a classic enviroment you can use?

    You should just reinstall OS X. And if you have the CDs that come with it just reinstall OS 9 over it.

    I didn't get the chance to read the Changing HD Name thread, but if sharing is turned on, you can't change the HD name until sharing is turned off.

    I think you're stuck unless you install from CD so it loads the correct HD drivers/etc... Especially if you run dual OS's.

    You can pick up a copy of OS 9 pretty cheap on eBay, I think I paid $28. Worth it. And you can download the updates to 9.1/9.2 still.
