Power Mac G4 450 MHz w/ Mac OS 8.6

According to everymac, this Mac should be able to get 8.6 running. Even though it apparently can run it, I can't get it to boot any 8.6 install discs I can find. Could anyone point me in the direction of a disc that should boot on it?

You found the disc? I have an image of my CD in my archive if you still need it.

Do you have a scan of it or something? I'd like to see what it looks like too! It would be nice if you ripped it as well in case this image is bad as I won't be able to test it until tomorrow. I'd appreciate it! Thanks

No, I mean I ripped it to a disk image. Let me know if you need it.
