What is Mac OS 9.2.2 Universal (2002 edition)?

This is a Bootable Universal install CD of Mac OS 9.2.2, US English. Suitable for most G3 & G4 Macintosh models (not all of them).

Mac OS CPU Software 4.9, includes the Mac OS ROM file v9.2.1

Note: This 2002 version is the best.  For later G4's models such as MDD, please use this install CD ISO for unsupported G4's.  Altough, there is a newer version of Mac OS 9.2.2 universal boot disk compiled in 2013 that is supposed to support most G3 and G4 models, it really doesn't boot a lot of them, while this 2002 one does.
