    This is kinda stupid, I guess...

    But, I like experimenting with OS's and the classic feature on Tiger is cool and all, but it runs some software poorly.

    Is there anyway to boot into OS9 with the files provided when you installed classic? I'm asking because classic gave me an OS9 system folder, how can I boot from it?

    I'm using an eMac.

    The 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 one.

    The version of the eMac cannot boot into Mac OS 9. It can only be run via the Classic system in 10.4.

    Aw, that sucks.

    Thanks, though.

    I doubt that eMac does, but is OS 9 an option when you check System Preferences > Start Up disk? If it is, you probably can do it.

    Nope, I actually tried that before.

    When I noticed OS9 wasn't there I thought something was wrong/had to be done.
