Found a DP 867 MHZ DP mac at a good price. Would that work for dual booting into OS9 and OS X.5???

That Mac is capable of Leopard! However, Classic will only run under Tiger. I am not sure if OS 9 will run natively on that Mac. Perhaps someone can chime in if they know.

Yup the G4 Mirror Drive Doors are the last PowerMacs that can boot into OS 9; and having a CPU that runs at or faster than 867MHz, it passes the CPU clock check Leopard does while installing.
