Hi there, apologies if this has been asked and answered before, I tried searching but couldn't find quite what I was looking for.

I use a G4 dual processor (Mirrored Drive Doors) currently runnoing OSX 10.2.8

I am thinking of upgrading to OSX 10.5 Leopard (I believe this is the highest upgrade I can achieve with my non-Intel processors). The problem I have is that I believe OSX 10.5 does not support classic mode. I have an old version of Adobe photoshop that I currently use in Classic mode and if I was to upgrade I would still like to be able to use it.

Is there any way of upgrading to 10.5 but still being able to use my photoshop software in Classic mode?

Many thanks in advance.

As answered by baggss, but is there any particular reason why you want to move to Leopard as opposed to Tiger? OS 10.4.11 would give you several of the features continued in Lpd, as well as the Classic mode.

Another option with your machine is to run a second (small, eg. 80 Gb) hard drive with dedicated OS 9 on it. I have a G3 b/w with just that facility. You could then use your main hard drive, with maximum RAM, to run Lpd.
