First, you have to get Mac OS. If you have an "old world ROM", you can get anything from 7.5.3 to 9.0.4. If you don't, get 8.5-9.0.4, and extract the "new world" ROM from it. SheepShaver doesn't "just run".

I'm not totally sure what you mean by "Rom" but I have the OS 9 installation disk.

The ROM, for the Mac, is like the BIOS is for the PC. It's the very first application the computer runs, and therefore the computer cannot boot without it. If you do have the OS9 CD, you can extract the rom image from it, or from the Mac OS ROM update.

btw what version of OS9 do you have? Because if it is higher than 9.0.4 it won't work on SheepShaver.

I have MAC OS 9.0 but when I try to explore the disk it says


"Windows cannot read from disk. The disk may be corrupted (I know it's not because it works on my Mac), or it could be in a format that is not compatable with Windows."

What can I do to extract the ROM? Is there a program that can do it?

Follow the conversation on this thread http://www.emaculation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=804
You can download a rom from apple and extract it using BII and tomeviewer.
Good Luck
