I have an old Mac Performa probably from 95 or 96. I want to try to install OS 9 on it since I have an old copy of that laying around. How would I even go about doing this? I don't think the CD drive on the Performa works.. so I guess I am probably screwed, but maybe there is another way? Thanks!

You'll have to find a working CD drive for it but here a few links that might give you some info:

Mac OS 8 and 9 compatibility with Macintosh computers

Macintosh: Support for Older Model Computers

Mac OS 9: Before You Install Read Me

Mac OS 9: About the Mac OS 9 Utilities Read Me

Mac OS 9: Available Updates

Also, make sure the Mac OS 9 install disks that you have are full install disks, i.e. not from another Mac model otherwise they won't work.
QUOTE Thanks
