Which install disk are you using? As I understand it, you will need a full retail version (black disk) of Tiger to install it. With Tiger comes Classic (OS 9).

It is possible that your machine does not read DVDs which Tiger comes on.

What kind of machine are you trying to install on? Is it the iBook G3?
