Mac os 9 boot iso

My english is'nt good enough so that I do it myself. I have used another persons guide to booting USB and have restored your image to a USB and tried numerous other methods but still no luck. All of the commands work it just takes me to a prohibitionary symbol when trying to boot USB. I even tried booting a I was following this guide: I get more success when I skip the first command and follow through with the dev usb0 etc.

Either way however, it wont boot.

At one point I was able to get the checksum error that he shows a picture of in the original article. I also changed my machine ID to powermac4,3 from 6,5, but I didn't store it. However, if I choose it or if I hold 'C' on boot, either way, it takes me to a gray screen. Do I need to do anything again in OpenFirmware to get this to boot up?

Installing Os 9.2.2 (Resolved - Thx to MacCubed)

After that I was able to boot and install. Removed the Multiprocessing folder from Extensions folder after install or else booting would stall. Booted up finally and the screen size was not showing up correctly, it was too small. I also had to remove "Remote Access" control panel for it to boot completely. Is this available elsewhere now?
