For All You Mac Users

Okay so i just got ahold of an older powerbook g3. On it there is a partition with os 9.2 installed on it and another with 10.2. I only want to run 10.2 and i could care less if i had 9.2 . Is there a way i can delete that os 9 partition and just use it as storage.. or does my os X require files from it?

anyhelp would kick as.s.thnks

you could format just the first partition, then the second, then take the hard-drive out, burn the computer, go buy a normal pc (linux, unix, win).

now proceed to burning the old hard-drive.

have fun and take pictures!

Nofx Guy you must delete both partitions, create 1 new partition then fromat it and install OSX. Then when you figure out how OSX uses memory and cant multitask, you'll end up using 3 Macs just to do the things 1 PC can do. I've been there, it's horrible.
