Has anyone attempted the install of OS 9 on a Mini?

I have numerous applications that run on OS 9 and loved it maybe as much if not more than OS X.

What's the big roadblock with OS 9 being installed on modern macs?

I'm pretty sure my Mac mini came with both the disk for OSX and the disk for OS 9 with the intention that OS 9 can be installed under OSX. I think there's even config options in system preferences for OS 9.

Why would you want to dump OS X completely?

Until recently, I had only OS 9 running on my old G4 400 PM. I think it works better as a stand-alone than running under "classic". I still would have OS X running on two systems...so I really wouldn't be dumping it completely.
