Booting OS 9 on a dual 1.42 G4, can it be done? - Mac Applications & Software

    The subject pretty much says it all... "Booting OS 9 on a dual 1.42 G4,

    I have heard via word-of-mouth that there is a hack out there that will
    allow it (the firewire 800 port doesn't work, bluetooth doesn't work,
    etc. -- that's all fine and dandy), I've searched around on the web and
    can't find anything about it though. Can someone point me in the right
    direction?

    And for the record, I have a few users who need to use a few OS 9 apps
    that do not work in classic and do not have OS X versions, as well there
    are no OS X equivalents replacements (some of them have been developed
    in-house).

    There is a hack to allow the new flat-panel iMacs to boot OS 9. The "hack" is
    actually a custom MacOS ROM file, creatd by Apple for the use of certain system
    technicians for troubleshooting purposes. Distributing that file is not legal.

    I have not heard of any similar capability or MacOS ROM file for dual G4
    systems...sorry!
