    Hi guys,
    I have a iBook G3 300 Mhz, and it has Mac os X Jaguar on it, and I was wondering if I could downgrade Mac OS X Jaguar to OS 9 or OS 8, because it is pretty slow and because I just want to use it as a classic machine for classic applications and games, without having to use classic mode in OSX.

    Thanks in advance!:)

    You can do whatever you want with that machine, but by downgrading you would have to just completely erase your drive prior to installing the older OS on it.
