First, thanks to everyone for the help. It got me thinking in somewhat
different ways and
tbat's the difference.
It seems the machine really doesn't like having only an unitialized HD
on the IDE bus. What I finally was able to do was to use the 8.1 PPC
disktools floppy image from Apple to get in and initialize the drive.
Since the CD was still being flaky, I put the iomega driver on the
floppy and used my 100 mb Zip to copy all the bits for a MacOS 9 install
onto the hard drive. Now that all the apple drivers are in place
everything is working well.
By far the wierdest issues I've ever had with a Mac. But my wife is
going from a 7600/132 with 4 gb disk and 144mb ram to a 233mhz G3 with
12 gb (a 9 and a 4 drives - it's B or later so slave drives work) and
288 mb ram. Definate improvement in Netscape 7 performance, shall we say...
