OS 9 no longer launches after upgrade to OS X...

I went through the whole process of applying the various OS9 updates in order to upgrade to OSX.  One of the updates (9.2.2 I think it was) seemed to have some sort of problem but, impatient as I can be, I pushed on.  OS X installed and runs just fine.  Problem is now, OS 9 will not launch at all, it freezes half way through the boot sequence.  How can I fix this problem?  Can I go back and somehow try to reinstall the OS 9 updates?  Do I need to remove OS X and start from scratch?  Need the best solution here.  Thanks.

It is not likely that you have to remove OS X.  Try reinstalling the OS 9 updates
and pay closer attention to "some sort of problem".

Yes, what was the "some sort of problem"? It's not a good idea to push on when a computer is having problems. It's like driving your car when you know its low on oil. It'll only get worse.

You just need to boot from the OS 9 cd and install that again. I would suggest you start with installing a fresh OS 9 and then continuing with the updates. You don't need to uninstall OS X for this.
