Nope. Not at all. :(

I tried that. Under one of the options on the menubar there was a burn
image option, but it appears to look for cdrw drives. It just said no
drives found that supported the burn operation.

I guess I'll have to rejig the partitions and install MacOS 9 on a
separate partition. This is all getting a bit tight as all bootable
partitions have to be within the first 8 gig on this old beast :(

This has certainly turned into more of a learning curve than I hoped
it would :(
