    Duff-Man says.....if you are installing 10.3, there really is not much use for keeping 10.2.x. If you delete the the OS 9 system, you'll not a system for running "classic" should the need ever come up. I think you are best to do an "archive and install" of 10.3. This will take your 10.2.x and put in all in a "previous system folder." Then once you are sure your new 10.3 install is working fine, you can delete the old "previous system" stuff. The OS 9 install itself is really not very big so unless you are really desperate for drive space I would leave it for now.....oh yeah!

    OS 9 is not that big

    the whole OS9 system folder only takes up 338.2mbs..if you need space that bad i suggest getting a new hard drive..
