Question about Apple iMac G3 Desktop
Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.
The "human face" icon is an indication that your hard drive is not being recognized by your iMac G3 because the hard drive is not formatted to read the Mac OS 9 software.
What you need to do is initialize your hard drive so you can
it can read the Mac OS 9.0.4 software.
