Why bother at all with OS9? Isn't it dead yet?
I hope to be getting an iBook soon. One of the Clamshell G3 ones - I believe the first series. I know it comes with OS X, but not OS 9 (the user lost the original CD).
So I am also going to get OS 9, but it says "upgrade CD" on it. Now, being more used to Windows, that to me means I would have to have, say, OS 8.6 for it to work, right? Or can I perform the installation from scratch?
Also, does the Hard Disk have to be partitioned for me to run both those OSes and if so, can this be done without wiping out it's existing installation of OS X?
Finally, does it matter what order those OSes are installed in, like Windows?
Thanks for any help.
