Making "bootable" disk

Making "bootable" disk
Norton's Disk Utility (V8.x) has OS9 and OsX boot images on the disk to boot into either system for their respective disk utilities.
I would like make a "backup" copy of the OS9 version to a separate disk to keep with my OS9 software collection.
I have tried Disk Utility (V10.4.4 on my Dual G4) and a couple of different "cloners" with make bootable option ticked and burnt thru Disk Copy, Toast 6 Titanium and Dragon Burn) to no avail.
I have made "bootable" disks before but can't remember the procedure (getting "old timers", I think :))
Maybe this version of Disk Utility (10.4.4) won't let you do bootable copies?
(Note to above - when formatting HD's with this version of Disk Utility, I did notice that there are no options in formatting/partitioning a disk to load OS9 drivers even though I am running OsX 10.3.9 - all updates)
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you - Ron

First, I hope you don't use Norton Utilities with OS X. It's incompatible and not supported. NUM can damage your OS X disk.
If you need a duplicate of the OS 9 disc try the following:
Duplicate a CD or DVD
1. Insert the DVD/CD;
2. Open Disk Utility, and select the DVD/CD from the left side list (select the DVD/CD icon on top);
3. from the DU File menu select New | Disk Image from Disk 1;
4. Choose to format the disk image as DVD/CD Master, name the disk image and click Save;
5. When the .cdr file is finished select it with mouse and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info and check the box to lock the file;
6. Choose the .cdr file from the left side list, click Burn, and insert a new, blank DVD or CD.
