How to install OS 9 on my powerbook 12" - Mac Applications & Software

Hi, I just bought a powerbook g4 12", i was looking at the manual and read that OS 9 was not installed even as a boot option, But I wan't to put it on so i can run os 9 stuff like games and connectix VGS (which I do not believe will run well in classic mode) Does anyone know how to install os 9? I was told that i dont have to make a seperate partition, but if i have too, doeas anyone know of a good partition maker? Thanks Josh...

    Apple stopped updating OS9, meaning it won't be updated to support
    newer computers like your 12" PowerBook. Even if you get hold of an
    installation disc, you can't start up from it -- Classic mode is your
    only option, I'm afraid.

    No, you can't boot up a 12" G4 PowerBook in OS 9, but it should have
    come with 9 already installed and available to use in Classic mode. To
    my knowledge, Apple has not sold _any_ computers that come with only OS
    X installed.

    Thats what i thought but i can only use classic mode, i want to boot
    into os 9, why did apple stop os 9. :( oh well, i also found out that
    connectix vgs can only run on some g3 machines anyway.

    It stands to reason that, when Apple introduced Mac OS X close to 2.5
    years ago, they would sometime stop selling computers that boot in
    anything else. They announced sometime last year that all new models
    introduced after January 3, 2003, would boot in OS X only.
