For what it’s worth, I have a mini that I put os 9 on the other day (from macos9lives, v8), but haven’t played with it too much.

For the unfamiliar ,  can you clarify what v8 means and what version mini?

Mac mini g4, 1.4 ghz, 1gb ram, and v8 is the un offical vers. of os 9 from “macos9lives” that runs on a mini.. They’re doing great work there.

The original iBook G4 (12" 800, 14" 933/1.0) will boot OS 9. No newer versions will.

I'm pretty sure there's no iBook G4 that will run OS 9, at least in a supported manner. I've got the original 12" 800 MHz, and I've managed to use the various "unsupported G4" install discs. You can get a booting system. But graphics drivers and wifi drivers are lacking, making the thing pretty unusable.

Good catch - I just looked again and I was wrong on that one. Because that post is in my own list of things to make into wiki pages or future info-pages, I'm going to make the update in that post, as well.

 

So, All iBook G3s will but no iBook G4s will.
