    Classic 9 is not running
    i'm new at macs and i got a referbished eMac 1.44 ghz v.10.4.8, but whenever i try to install some old software that requires classic 9, i'm unable to install it because i don't have a version of mac os 9. Do i have to buy os 9 even though i have the os 10.4 cds ?

    Check your install media. Classic is not installed by default, so you might have it included on your install discs.
    If not, then yes you will have to purchase a copy of OS 9 to run Classic apps.

    Yes, you need to be running Classic to install Classic apps.
