OSX folder on OS9 partition? - Mac Applications & Software

When I bought my iBook I was using OS9 so I made two partitions -- 20 MB for the OS9 boot volume and 10 MB for the OSX folders. I now regret not leaving the hard disk with a single partition and I might re-format it at some point. But for now, I'd like to move the Users folder from the OSX partition to the larger OS9 partition. Can I do this without breaking anything? Thanks for any help. (Apologies if this is posted twice. I tried to send it last night but I don't think it went through.) -- ...

    Default OSX folder on OS9 partition?

    When I bought my iBook I was using OS9 so I made two partitions --
    20 MB for the OS9 boot volume and 10 MB for the OSX folders. I now
    regret not leaving the hard disk with a single partition and I might
    re-format it at some point. But for now, I'd like to move the Users
    folder from the OSX partition to the larger OS9 partition. Can I do this
    without breaking anything?
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for sending me this information. I read both articles but
    I'm very new to using OSX and I don't feel comfortable attempting these
    changes. All I really want to do is save my own files on the OS9
    partition because it's larger. I've been using the folders I set up
    under OS9 and that seems to be working all right. I presume I can
    continue to do this until I reformat into one partition. I know OSX
    wants all user files to go into the Doents folder, but I want to
    ignore that for now.

    Sure. An easy way would be do create the folders on your other
    partition. Make an alias to them in your Doents folder.
