I just purchased a copy of Final Cut Pro for OS 9 that I want to install on my 12" Powerbook Titanium.  When I try to install the prog., it gives me an error that says ' This program cannot run under classic environment, please run under native Mac OS 9.'   When I try to install OS 9, my powerbook won't startup off of the OS 9 Install CD

How can I install OS 9 on my 12" Powerbook????

What happens when you try to boot with the os 9 cd?  What was the os that came preinstalled on this laptop?

Do you even see the os 9 smile face?  Are you holding c down?  Are you able to go to startup disk and select that cd to boot from?  zapped p-ram?Maybe you have one of the machines that can not boot into os9.  How new is the machine?

The machine is only 6 months old

I've held down C, and cleared P-Ram.

I dont want to upgrade b/c I like the GUI for final cut under OS 9, not X.

I am thinking that you have a machine that can not boot into os 9.  Have you ever before?  Most newer computers are not able to boot into os 9 anymore.  They can only run classic from 10.
