Do i really have to install os 9 first?


Official Mac User
I formatted my hd today, and clean installed os 10.1.
I made up a 1.3 gb partition for os 9.2.1 which I haven't installed yet but want to do so tonite.
But now i read that i'd have to install os 9 BEFORE os x to get classic apps to work. is that right? if yes, y is it that way?
the os x installer told me, that i can install os 9 l8er if i want... :confused:
You can install it later, but you have to tell OS X where OS 9 is located in order to use classix (this is in teh classix control panel) :)
