What exactly would I install for "Classic" in my brand new imac?

Is this OS 9.?

Is it called "classic"?

Will my old 8.6 work?

Thanks.

Is this a new Intel iMac? If so, no classic Mac OS will install. Sorry. The last Mac to run Classic OS was the G5's. Most all the G4's except the very last models will boot from say Mac OS9.

All Macs now use Intel CPU's. Classic was only for the Power PC architecture.

unless someone has a really old mac that wont run osx, I cant imagine why anyone would bother running classic or os 8, 9. ?

I used OS 7,8,9 for years... but when OSX came out, it took some time, but i'm hooked on OSX.... no way would I go back to pre osX.

Some wonderful apps never made it onto OS X, and we need to use them (I keep an iMac G3 with Mac OS 8.6 around for that purpose) and some just like the classic OS's more then OS X.

Yeah, on a similar note some wonderful beta tape car stereos never made it to new production cars, and we need to use them, so awful, ugly vehicles with poor economy from the 80's are the way to go and some just like old awful cars more than new ones.
