    I'm a newbie user of Macs and I was wondering how to install Classic. I don't know what it is but it says that I need it to run in order to install some software I bought. At the moment I am running 10.3 on my computer which I upgraded from Jaguar originally. Where do I find Classic?

    Classic is MacOS 9.2 running as an application under MacOS X 10.x. For the past few years, every Macintosh shipped by Apple had MacOS 9 preinstalled even if the default OS was MacOS X 10. It sounds as though you need to reinstall it. Older Macs can boot into MacOS 9 which allows you to perform a standard installation of the OS. If you bought a computer that cannot boot into MacOS 9, then you need to reinstall it from the restore CDs that shipped with your computer. It is also possible to simply copy MacOS 9.2 from another Mac.
