classic os 9 issues on os 10.4

Hello! I hope you fine folks can help me.
I am trying to run OS9 classic in osx, but a warning pops up saying it cannot find the system folder on the startup disk and that I might need to reinstall os9.
I assumed that when I reformatted and upgraded my OSX that os9 came along with it. I have just moved and regrettably I LOST my osx cd. I have older versions. I am not sure what to do and I look forward to any suggestions! thanks!

You should save the Mac OS 9 system folder from your previous installation and replace it to your system after doing a clean install of Mac OS X.
Mac OS X only comes with the Classic application, not Mac OS 9. At this point Apple figures you should already have a copy (usually acquired with hardware these days). The new version of Classic should update the old Mac OS 9 system folder with what it needs, and then you should be fine from there.
If needed, Classic can be pointed at the system folder from the Classic system preference panel.
