Go in terminal - To switch back to the Mac OS X interface, type reboot and press the Return key. The computer restarts and you see the login dialog or the Mac desktop, depending on your login preferences.

Can you see your "System" folder in your HD? This is the OS X folder; the OS 9 one is called "System Folder"
