After installing the 10.2.5 upgrade to my dual boot workstation, I got the following problem: 10.2.5 works fine and connects fine to the office 100bt ethernet...

But when I boot up in 9.22, my ethernet speeds are crippled (approx. 1 MB per minute, as opposed to several MB per second 100BT!!!).

I realized 10.2.5 could have done something to my 9.22 system folder (while "updating" its "Classic" mode), so I installed a clean version of 9.22 on another attached drive. But, booting into that one had same problem.

I am stumped! This was not happening with v 10.2.4. Is 10.2.5 somehow less compatible with booting to 9? I know it runs on the new OSX only systems, perhaps its changing ROM or I/o port settings? Is anything like this possible?

That's really strange. Other than adding a few files to the OS 9 system folder, I had no idea OS X could affect (or effect?) OS 9.

Well it certainly can - most of OS 9's services are provided by OS X - the Classic application basically uses the OS X APIs. That's why OS 9 allows access to all files on the disk, but in Classic permissions are in force. However, there are some things that OS X doesn't provide - like access to the serial ports (which Classic manages to get anyway).

That's how I understand it, anyway.

He's talking about straight-booting OS9... OSX does NOT provide OS9's services when OS9 is the system that was booted...
