Connection Failed Error Message...

When I start up one of my G4 Quicksilvers to Classic OS 9 under OS 10.4 Tiger, I get an error message:

"Connection Failed.
The server may not exist or is not operational at this time. Check the server name or IP address and try again."

I have two G4 towers and a G4 Powerbook connected using Airport with DSL internet. All three machines have OS X.4 Tiger.

One G4 and the Powerbook give me the same message. I have to stop running Classic before it fully loads as that message keeps popping up.

The other tower however, allows me to run Classic under Tiger with no problems whatsoever.

Also, if I try to boot up OS 9 by using the startup disk under preferences, the computer in question will crash upon startup.
QUOTE Thanks
