Which version of OS X includes a full version of classic install? 10.2?
Not just support for it but includes the install for it and puts it on your hard drive.

Short answer: None.

Long Answer: The Macs that I bought that came with Classic had Classic on the System Restoration Discs that came with them. If you have a PowerPC G3 or G4 system that came with Classic, you would need to find a set of the original System Restoration discs for that computer.

The post above is correct; you need the original grey DVDs. However, the last version that can use Classic is 10.4 (Tiger).

I just got it from netboot9 a download from the apple website. It included the system 9 folder. Seems to be working fine.
