I will try to clarify here. Contrary to what some might think, "Classic" is NOT the same as OS 9. Yes, you can enter the "Classic" environment if you have a computer capable of running OS 9 natively and have it installed on a volume or partition. Yet if you had a computer that isn't capable of running OS 9 natively, you can still run "Classic".

In other words:

If you wanted to install OS 9 from an OS 9 disc for your "Classic" environment, then no... you can't install it after Tiger without doing a clean, fresh install.

On the other hand, if you had something like a PowerBook G4 that came with Tiger installed... then the restore/install discs would have "Classic" included on the disc that you can install after Tiger is already installed.

Hope that makes a little more sense.
