Ahh.. this is a problem with OS9.. it won't recognize the older floppy
format, you'll have to mount the image disk on an older OS I believe
8.5-6 should do it
 I suggest if you have a removable (external HD,Zip,Jaz or anything)
install a basic system say.. 7.5 or anything you have on hands boot
from the disk and put a copy of the Aladdin stuff -- Shrik Wrap,stuffit
etc.. and you are set for the future.
You can also try with an older MacOS on CD, there is usually a copy of
DiskCopy which will enable you to mount the img. file.
