I put OSX.3 on my iMac 233 and I was trying to save HD space and didn't do it right so now when it starts up it gets a kernel panic right away.

I tried to put the OS 9 disk in and hold 'c' and it dosn't work

is there some way I can just erase the HD whithout getting the system up? unless there is something else I should try?
QUOTE Thanks
