Hi Jim,

Sorry to ask a stupid question : did you choose the folder slid on your
PowerBook disk within the Classic prefpane? (If not, go Apple>System
Preferences>Classic, and choose the right folder in the first tab.)

Otherwise, you may want to run the MacOS X installer and choose within
the options 'Install Classic'.
