I am a newbie, used to use a G4 quicksilver. Son downloaded bunches of music to the harddrive, eventually the drive crashed, tried to use various solutions, but none have worked. Now I can only get into open firmware, where the message that the device has no active package is revealed to me when I ask ls dir.
My os 10.1.5 cd is scratched and will not load.
Os 9.2 cd will not recognize the disk.
Any suggestions, other than use the quicksilver as a doorstop, or buy a new harddrive and purchase a newer more updated install cd?
