    As you maybe know, your iBook can't boot directly into OS 9, however, the chaps over on this site have hacked a way to do it:

    Tread carefully though as it requires a bit of work!

    For day to day application use, you are probably better off with Classic as OS 9 will likely lack the appropriate graphics acceleration for games. If you ever wanted a native machine to run OS 9, then a Titanium PowerBook or iBook G3 is your best bet in terms of portables.
