    Specs:
    3 Ghz i3 iMac, Macbook Pro, Old G5, iPhone, iPad, and a drawer of iPods
    Avid Composer broke Classic OS
    I recentley installed Avid Composer 7 on an old G3 iMac DV 500 Mhz.
    As soon as Composer installed OS 9 was broken. I cant boot into 9, or reach 9 in Classic Mode.
    I didnt think it would even install if the hardware configuration wouldnt work, too my horror I was wrong. I dont have my original discs for this machine and the install discs for my G5 wont work on the G3 to reinstall OS 9.

    Try booting 9 while holding down the shift key, to turn off all the extensions that aren't Apple's. Maybe Avid installed an extension that's causing the trouble.

    If that doesn't work, boot into X and run a search for Avid. Trash everything you find. Then run Disk Utility.

    Are the G3 and the G5 networked?

    Edit: Just noticed the OP is a month old.
