    Install 0s 9.2 Over 8.6

    I recently bought a used iMac G3, which has a French language OS 8.6 on it. I have an OS 9.2.1 installer, but it refuses to instal over the OS 8.6. I've tried using Clean Install Assistant, but it informs me that I can't install over the 8.6.

    All the other messages I get are in French, which I only have a vague recollection of from high school (and that's a l-o-n-g time ago).

    Any ideas?

    Can I delete the OS 8.6 somehow, after backing it up just in case?

    If your 9.2.1 is not a full install, you need 9.0 first.
