I need a bootable Mac OS 9.2.2 System Folder from an iMac G3. I need it because my iMac G3 has been on the fritz all week.

Needed from an iMac G3:

Applications (Mac OS 9)
System Folder

Why not just download one of the Mac OS 9 discs from the FTP server and reinstall it using that? :)

How much Ram does it have? If it's one of the last G3s (which it is if the minimum OS is 9.2.x) then it's a pretty fast machine, you'd get a lot more out of it running OS X as long as it has enough memory (OS X Tiger is great on these older machines). Does it definitely not boot with 9.2.1, have you tried? (the FTP has 9.2.1)

How can we give you a systems folder?

One could be zipped up, Classic Mac OS is very flexible so you can copy a system folder to another machine and usually run with no problems, but it would be better to just download an OS 9.2 or preferably an OS X 10.4 install disc image.

If it's a G3 iMac, it "requires" at most 9.1. The last G3 iMacs (machine id: PowerMac 4,1) were released in 2001 and shipped with 9.1 or 9.2. The only computers that must have 9.2.2 or greater to run are G4s (the first two gens of G4 iMacs, and the original Quicksilvers).

The Mac OS 9.2.1 bootable ISO that's on the server should work just fine to get your computer up and running, and you should be able to apply the updates after the fact.
