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?

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

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.
