If your "burned copey" is from a CD that came along with a specific model computer, the original CD may only properly install on that machine.

What kind of "scan" tells you it's "working good" as an install CD?

Is your copy a full OS install or just an updater? Both kinds were sold by Apple.

Get ahold of a general retail version of the legal install CD. Available cheaply on ebay and from many online Mac dealers.
Bet it will work just fine.

yes it goes to the cd screen where it has the cd back ground but when i push the mac os install it wont go to the next step but on thing is funny about it i have adobe suite on here when i first got it none of the editing programs would open up it keep saying and this otutilitylib what the response i got off of creative cow was otutilitylib is part of Open Transport, is is missing or hasn't loaded
on startup. If it's not in your extensions folder in the system folder
you'll either need to do a custom install from the OS 9 CD of just Open
transport, or in some cases re-install the complete system
--- and the funny thing about it when i put the os 9.1 in the programs open up but i got to leave the cd in to open the programs up but as i take it out the prgrams wont open up and it says the same thing otutilitylib

Did a quick "otutilitylib" search (http://www.google.com/mac.html is your friend). There is an Apple doc http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=24960 that at least explains the situation and offers a couple of procedures to deal with it.
