Part VI: Appendices > Mac OS X System Requirements

Mac OS X System Requirements

This appendix guides you through the basics of installing Mac OS X as well as a version of Mac OS 9.

Wait a minute! Why would you install Mac OS 9 after buying this book on Mac OS X? To put it simply, your computer can have both operating systems. Because Apple realized that the software its longtime users have come to know and love might not be available immediately in Mac OS X–compatible versions, Mac OS X was specially designed to cooperate with the “classic” Mac OS, versions 9.1 and up. More about running Classic applications is available in Appendix B, “Running Classic Applications.”
