i recently purchased an ibook with one of those lacie usb2.0 7200rpm external hard drives.
This beingmy first mac i have only ever used panther, but is there any way i can install os9 on an ibookg4?
if so could it be installed just on my external hdd so i can mess about with it without risking the internal drive?
also, on a not so related note, could i install panther on the external drive and somehow boot from it to increase performance over the slower internal drive of the ibook? then i could surely have a complete backup of the system which i could copy back onto the internal hard drive as and when neccassary (having booted osx off the external drive)
any help regarding these issues would be gratefully recieved.
