Installing 8.6 on a G4 with OS? : LUSENET : Mac Troubleshooting : One Thread

I have a 400 Mhz G4 that came with OS9. I also have the Iomega Buz whose software is not (yet) compatible with OS9, so I want to install system 8.6 on another partition that I created, but every time I try to run the 8.5 or 8.6 install it says I cannot run it. In addition, I cannot boot from a CD that has 8.5 or a zip that has 8.6 (still boots with OS9). I read somewhere that you cannot install 8.6 on a G4 that comes with OS9. Is this true? Would I be able to install 8.6 from the disk that came with the earlier G4's? Thanks! Adam
