Hello,

I'm going to be upgrading OSX (40 gig) as soon as 10.2 comes out but I have a second HD that currently houses OS9 (20 gig). I'm concidering leaving OS9 behind all together but what should I do with the extra drive if I decided to only run OSX on my 867? I do have a few OS9 games I like but I'm not sure I care to keep OS9 around just for them (I'm tring to move foward ).

Any set up suggestions?

I've been advised not to get rid of 9 just yet. I was told (by people here on this forum) that sometimes programs require 9 to install properly (including Photoshop I believe).

I kept 9, mainly b/c I have learned it is one of the best tools for tweaking OS X.

That's my 2 cents worth.

Peace,

O
B unce!

Removing OS9 is a personal issue. Frankly - if there are key apps you need that don't fuction well in classic, then obviously keep it around.

I went OS9 free about three months ago. I can't say I miss it, or needed it. BTW, Photoshop installed fine for me (it was a full version - not an upgade if it makes any difference).

I have an 80gig drive that I use for storing MP3s, backups, etc - so that I can format my main drive w/o disrupting my music library.

Yeah, that's pretty good advise. I have used OS9 to get rid of user accounts in OSX. I sure would miss playing Hornet Korea too.

I haven't really ever used classic, I've just started up the OS9 drive if I wanted to play in OS9 - which has been less and less frequent. I really have only kept 9 around to play Hornet Korea, if GSC ports it over I can go totally OSX with no regrets. Maybe I'll keep 9 for a bit longer. As far as my music library goes I only have a small 500MB one.

Thanks for the advise guys!
