That's exactly what I did.
MacOS 9.2 from the Installation CD starts to boot.
In the beginning the mouse is working.
After 4 symbols (2 arrows, a question mark, a N, and i think the
quicktime logo) appeared in the lower left corner and the progress has
nearly reached the end, the system hangs. Mouse is not moving anymore.
And after some time CD and harddrive are throttled down.

I don't believe the CD is damaged, because, the installed versions of
MacOS (9.2 and X) and their installation CDs (with holding the C key)
all hang durig boot.

Is their a possibility to change the way MacOS is booted?
To skip most drivers, or kind of "single user" mode or even
