    My first thought would be to remove the "System Folder" folder, not the "System" folder though.

    You would probably need to boot from a CD-ROM to do it.

    I'm not sure you're going to save a lot of space though. Most of the space inside my System Folder is taken up by fonts, preferences, and browser cache.

    couldn't you just format your HD & then install just OS X? i think that would be alot easier...

    uhh.. I think that if you had a Mac for so long, you would have realised that there is no such thing as "uninstall". Just delete the System Folder, delete the OS 9 apps, and you're done!
