    Hi,

    I have a fresh installation of 10.2.8 and want to know how I can install Classic without messing up any of 10.2.8.

    I still have the OS9 CD's which came with my Powerbook G4 667, so getting OS9 is not a problem.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Boot up off the CD (Holding C)
    Install Normally, however, do a clean install (Otherwise, it won't install)
    Reboot into your new 9
    reboot into 10, and starup classic.

    Done

    Classic question (no pun)

    So

    I do an install of 9 then boot to 9

    How do I then change the boot up to 10?

    I've not used 9 much 98% of the time 10.2

    thanks

    Andrew

    Use "Startup Disk" in the control Panels, then change to the "System" folder from the "System Folder".
