Installing, Configuring, and Running the Classic Environment

To use the Classic environment (and thus Classic applications), you need to install and configure the Classic environment you want to use. After these tasks are accomplished, you can run the environment to run Classic applications.

When you installed Mac OS X, you should have also installed Mac OS 9.2, preferably on a different partition than Mac OS X is installed on (although they can be installed on the same partition). You can also have more than one volume containing Mac OS 9.2 on a single machine. Each instance of Mac OS 9.2 can be used to provide a different Classic environment. If you intend to run Classic applications a significant amount of time, the ideal scenario is to have two partitions on your machine: one for Mac OS X and one for the Mac OS 9 environment you will use. For a number of reasons, it is less desirable to have only one partition on your machine (with both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 installed on it).
