MacOS 10.1 -> 10.2 Upgrade? - Mac Applications & Software

I've been running 10.1.5 on my Quicksilver G4 ever since I got it, but it looks like I'll have to upgrade to 10.2 if I want to run some of the new stuff, such as Safari. So now to my questions: I don't like to upgrade an OS by running an updater; I prefer to erase the partition and install from scratch. I have two partitions: OS X and OS 9, both bootable.

    Default MacOS 10.1 -> 10.2 Upgrade?

    I've been running 10.1.5 on my Quicksilver G4 ever since I got it, but it
    looks like I'll have to upgrade to 10.2 if I want to run some of the new
    stuff, such as Safari.

    So now to my questions: I don't like to upgrade an OS by running an
    updater; I prefer to erase the partition and install from scratch. I have
    two partitions: OS X and OS 9, both bootable. If I follow this procedure,
    do I have to erase the OS 9 partition and reinstall it, or can I leave it
    alone? Does 10.2 come with a newer version of OS 9?

    You should be able to leave it alone. 10.2 does not come with any updates
    for OS 9, but they are available for free online via software update or
    download from Apple's Web site. If you don't have access to high-speed
    internet or don't want to wait to download the updates over a modem, you
    can still order 9.2 for $19.99 from Apple's store after purchasing 10.2.

    10.2 will require 9.2 for Classic mode, IMHO.

    Or, you can just wait for 10.3 later this year. :)
