Why do you need to download El Capitan through Terminal.
El Capitan is freely available from this link.
OS 9 has no Terminal app of course, however I did try to change the time and date of my G4 using the proper Control Panel (which did not work).

Here are the instructions.

This downloads InstallMacOSX.dmg to your Downloads folder.

a mac that came preinstalled with an OS later than El Capitan will refuse to do the next bit.
When downloaded open to InstallMacOSX.pkg, double-click on
that and an installation window will open, this does not install El Capitan
but converts the InstallMacOSX.pkg to the Install OS X El Capitan.app which
you will find in your Applications folder, it should be 6.2GBs in size.
(If the installation window asks which disk you want to install to, you must pick
the disk that you are booted to at the time. Not any internal or external disk that
you want to eventually install El Capitan on, that is for later.)
To start the installation of El Capitan double click on the Install OS X El Capitan.app.
The copy of the install app self deletes after installing El Capitan, so make sure you keep a copy of the InstallMacOSX.dmg
if you need it in future, or you could just make a copy of the Install OS X El Capitan.app prior to installing and moving it to

an external drive for safe keeping. It is also possible to create a bootable USB installer disk using the Install OS X El Capitan.app
in the Applications folder and the createinstallmedia command in the Terminal app.
