Will current 12" Powerbook G4 boot into OS 9? - Mac Applications & Software

Greetings! I'm trying to help a former student of mine who just started a new job at a university where they bought him a brand new and current Powerbook G4 with a 12" screen. Does anybody know definitively, will this machine boot into OS 9? He has classic installed and running, but no OS 9 system folder appears in the Startup prefence pane. He doesn't want to run in OS 9, he just needs to do an installation into classic that won't work in classic. See my simultaneous posting about installing keyboards into the classic system file (only at comp.sys.mac.system) ...

    Default Will current 12" Powerbook G4 boot into OS 9?

    Greetings!

    I'm trying to help a former student of mine who just started a new job
    at a university where they bought him a brand new and current Powerbook
    G4 with a 12" screen. Does anybody know definitively, will this machine
    boot into OS 9? He has classic installed and running, but no OS 9 system
    folder appears in the Startup prefence pane.

    He doesn't want to run in OS 9, he just needs to do an installation into
    classic that won't work in classic. See my simultaneous posting about
    installing keyboards into the classic system file (only at
    comp.sys.mac.system) if you're interested in the reason.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a current Powerbook G4 15" with Classic and OSX and have no problems booting up in OS9

    While in OSX -
    Open System Preferences
    Open Startup Disk
    Select OS9
    Restart

    To return to OSX Startup -
    Open Apple Menu
    Open Control Panels
    Open Startup Disk
    Select OSX
    Restart.

    The current 15" PowerBook was introduced before Jan 2003, so it boots
    into OS 9. The 12" Powerbook was introduced in Jan 2003, so it doesn't
    boot into OS 9.
