Are you installing from OS X or OS 9?
I'm also curious... are you trying to install from a CD, or from a disk image?

I am installing from OS 9 (CLASSIC) because this Final Cut Pro 1.2
requires Classic running.
I am trying to install it from a separate CD. It is not Resore CD.

What do you mean by "DISK IMAGE" ?

Thank you.

Eeh... to me it sounds like one of a few things... either your CD rom drive is flaky, or the CD rom itself is dirty/scratched.  Try looking at the bottom of the CD, is it reasonably clean and well taken care of?  If not, try and clean it with some of the popular cleaning tools out there.  If that isn't it... since swapping out your CD-Rom is quite a hastle... try either hooking up a USB/Firewire CD-Rom and installing it, or go to another mac and make a disk image using Disk Copy, then copy it onto this iMac, then mount the disk image, and install it from there.  If that doesn't work...  =P  Let me know

Why not leave it open until someone DOES come up with an answer?
Are you trying to install from the ORIGINAL software install disk, or from a copy?
