must I partition?


My copy of osx will be here any day now and I'm wondering if I have to partition my drive. I have a g3 266 beige desktop with 224 ram 4 gig internal 8 gig external (scsi, 3 partitions) and running 2 monitors using ati video card and oem.

What's my best bet to allocate properly? Do I have to put osx on my internal drive? do I have to partition my internal? I just hate having to move all these files around as I have jobs to do!

Wadda y'all think?
I don´t have equipment like yours but on my bronze i didn´t partition and i couldn´t boot back into Mac OS treaditional, the crashed all the time in OSX. So to save you the trubble I would recomend partitions.
