I haven't worked with Classic in a long time. Sorry about that.
That's interesting... I thought they used different partitions. Well now I know. And yes, she probably does not need OS 9 given that she is probably running Tiger or Leopard on these Intel Macs.
Course I was typing at midnight or around that time last night... while working around some bugs in my iTunes library. Oh well, my mistake regardless.
Still, if this machine is going to see a lot of use in the future, wiping the drive or throwing in a new one may be a good choice to consider. If it were me, I'd put in a 120GB drive and upgrade the CPU, if it was worth it. Those G4 and G3 upgrades can cost several hundreds of dollars, and quite frankly, it would be pointless to do when there are some newer Intel Macs right next to it. Now that I think of it, you would need OS 9 to upgrade some firmware in order to install a newer G4 chip, correct? A friend of mine told me this when he put a 1Ghz chip in an old Power Mac he got earlier this year.
Doesn't matter if it's going to act as a server or casual use machine though. Again, sorry about my misleading response.
