    yes you could, you need two seperate hard drives, I'm pretty sure you can't partition one drive and put two different op systems on it, you need one drive for os9 and one for osx. By the way a partion is a way of dividing one hard drive into several different sections, almost like a spliting a pie in a half, both are of the same size, if you put them back togather you still have one pie, both halfs of the pie are now seen as their own piece.

    Vessles,

    You can do multiple operating systems on the same computer...... this through either hardware or software.

    You are better off doing it with seperate drives for the operating systems.. although i have sucessfully done it using the primary drive for multiple OS's (in my case Windows NT, IBM OS2, UNIX and still maintained my original DOS for some engineering software i wanted to keep in use) In your case though - i would seriously reccomend seperate boot drives due to the possibility of conflicts with similar file names.

    So you could do this through the computer bios by enabeling/disabling seperate primary drives as the boot drives....... or through boot manager software.

    The easiest way to accomplish this (from my point of view) is with a boot manager....... there are quiet a few different options out there for this - and you always want to try to verify that they have been successfully tested with your OS.....

    here's a link to a site you can get some info from:

    http://www.buildorbuy.org/bootmanagers.html

    Good luck,

    Rod

    Thanks

    2nd Try......... lol

    Alécio,

    Structural Engineering Software, mechanical engineering software, etc....but not musical.

    The moment of a beam..... it's tensile strength - it's bending strengths - those things never change....... so for me upgrading never made sense - just to get a pretty, new, GUI....

    All i care about is the data - and the properties of a beam....... or a siesmic analysis, or wind loading - it's all the same today as it was 50 years ago....... so i keep what i have - and live with the fact that it's an "antique" that still runs...... while maintaing a multi boot sytem to make it happen......

    Uncle Rod is cooooooooooooool!
    So are you a mechanical engineer? I thought you were an architect.

    Alécio,

    I am a strange bird........ i do mechanical, electrical, structural, civil and acoustical engineering....... I am considered an expert in my field (by others) in building codes, life safety codes and the american's with disabilities act........ and am a voting member of the National Fire Protection Association.

    I am occassionally a guest speaker for the AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) and was featured in their June issue of Modern Steel Construction. I was a keynote speaker at their recent convention in Baltimore on the subject of Staggered Truss Construction.

    I wrote the Specifications and did all of the architectural detailing for a national museum at the Submarine Base located in Groton CT.

    I am certified in Hazzardous Waste disposal as well as transport and and a certified Hazzardous Waste Site Supervisor.

    So i tend to wear a lot of different hats with the firm i am employed with.

    I also play music........ :D :D :D sometime not so badly even.......

    Let us bend our knees

    Man, I will trash my engineering diploma right now. As Rod and Steve enter the chat forget Eng.Alécio Costa. lol

    Rod, very off topic now but...
    You mentioned fire...
    A guy came with a strange story that he did an acoustics course a few years ago in brazil and it was said that it is used sonex inside some planes...

    And that in California many years ago, a plane had a problem, fire inside I dunno and people died because ot a toxic gas that is liberated as the foam is burned. is this true?

    Alécio,

    1st - I apologize if i sounded like a pompus ass..... i may be an ass - but am really not pompus. Above is just what i do. So if i came off sounding conceited = please forgive me.

    Below is a Material Data Safety Sheet for the 3M Acoustical Foam....... I do not know who produces foam for Sonex.

    I have repeatedly said in the acoustic forum that any one using foam has to make certain to use the proper material..... which is fire safed.

    If the wrong product is used - what you described can happen.

    However - look below - the proper material = and you will see this is not a problem.

    The answer is that the 002 requires PT6 in OSX, it appears that OS9 drivers, don't exist. :cool:
