New PB- Setting-up Partitions - Mac Applications & Software

    Default New PB- Setting-up Partitions

    Hi,

    I just got a 15in PB 1Ghz. It's my first real experience with OS X.

    It came with 10.2.3 and 9.2.2 on the same partition.

    I wanted to have separate partitions for OS X and OS9.

    What I did was partition the drive using the Disk Utility from the
    Software Restore DVD (v.1.0) and then I installed just OS X on one
    partition.

    Since the Installer wouldn't let me install just OS9 onto the other
    partitions, what I did was restore everything including OSX to the OS9
    partition.

    I then booted in to OS9 and manually deleted all of the OSX apps,
    folders and files (like var temp mach...).

    Does that sound like an okay way to have done it, or might OSX have
    left some wired file behind on my OS9 partition that could cause
    problems.

    Should I have instead used the method described here?

    My suggestion: Don't bother. I have a fairly new Powerbook and two desktop
    Macs. All run OS X 10.2.6 and I tried doing what you proposed. There is
    absolutely no benefit in partitioning your hard drive for the two
    operating systems and it also constrains each partition to a smaller size
    (the size of the partition).

    My son just got a new PB and as it's the first one in the house with OS
    X, we were discussing the same question. The leader of the OS X SIG for
    my User Group suggested the idea of partitioning the HD and making a
    scratch disk (maybe 5 gig or so) for Photoshop would be a good idea.
    Any thoughts?

    BTW, Stan and I belong to the same MUG. Hi Stan. <G>

    That's true only because most users won't ask the question. If they
    know enough to ask the question and understand it, they can benefit from
    it.
