    I am using a mac G4 with both OS9 and OSX. The day has come to uninstall OS9 but can't figure it out. There are no uninstall options on the OS9 discs. Any suggestions?

    Drag the OS 9 System Folder (the one called "System Folder" with the orange-ish "9" on it) to the trash. Drag the "Applications (Mac OS 9)" folder to the trash. Empty the trash.

    Pray you didn't delete something from an OS 9 application/file that you might someday need.

    that simple hey? i didnt think the whole 'just trash it' would apply to Operating Systems also. Yep, im all backed up. Thanks for that. I guess I'll do the same for Classic too.

    OR if you caqnnot get permissions to do that in OS X boot your mac with an OS 9 startup disk then drag all the Mac os 9 folders and application foldewrs to the trash. Bingo!
