==============================================================================
Background only for those who are interested... the download was created via the following process:

Note: THE STEPS BELOW DO NOT NEED TO BE DONE, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN ALREADY DONE FOR YOU, THESE ARE NOT DIRECTIONS, ONLY REFERENCE INFO.

1) QEMU (qemu-system-ppc Version 5.2) was downloaded.

2) At the root level of the QEMU folder, the following Mac OS X terminal was used to created a RAW 2GB drive image

--- Quote ---./qemu-img create -f raw -o size=2G MacOS922_Lives.img
--- End quote ---

3) Our most popular 9.2.2 ISO: (with over 250 Thousand downloads)
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,2109.0.html
was also copied to the root level of the QEMU Folder and renamed MacOS922Lives.iso

4) The Following qemu.command (command script) was used to boot the emulator with the un-formated drive and the CD Mounted, I have added some comments to the script...

# Next Line tells OSX this is a bash script
#!/bin/bash

# Next Line sets the path for the executable to current folder
cd "$(dirname "$0")"

# Next Section of lines starts QEMU and passes the stated parameters
# L defines the location of bios files to be used
# M defines the mac model used
# m defines the amount of memory in MB
# boot d defines to boot from a drive entry marked as a cdrom
# drive file defines a hard disk image or CD ISO image
# netdev passes internet to the emulated PPC

./qemu-system-ppc \
-L pc-bios \
-M mac99,via=pmu \
-m 768 \
-boot d \
-drive file=MacOS922Lives.iso,format=raw,media=cdrom \
-drive file=MacOS922_Lives.img,format=raw,media=disk \
-netdev user,id=network01 -device sungem,netdev=network01 \
-device VGA,edid=on \

5) Launch the qemu.command file (by double clicking or via the OS X terminal) to start the emulator.

6) Now that the emulator is booted to the CD image, run drive setup and follow the normal steps as if it were a real PPC G3 or G4

I call this the "Initial" image since it has no added applications and is a machine with only the initial install of our CD.
