i also have a bondi. my mother and gf have imacs too, both newer. at
the moment, we're all running 10.3.9. my gf's is the only one likely
to support 10.4 right off.

in my limited experience - when you reinstall osx it leaves your old
installation in the 'previous versions' folder, still bootable. does
installing 10.4 [for example] with xpostfacto still do this? i'm not
interested in keeping os9 around but it sure seems like a good idea to
have a natively-supported os available!
" What I always do is to create an 8000 megabyte or less partition, install

i like the idea of a root partition, a users partition, and an
applications partition if it turns out you need more than one root...
