Hey all. Nice place you have here:)

Anyway, my question is: I am just about to partition a new drive into 2 partitions,.. 1 for my OSX installation, and the other to run my Existing OS9 system on. Using the 'Disk Utility' Application, I have noticed that I have the option to format using the 'UNIX file system'.

My question is just be sure, will my OS9 run on a UNIX file system partition?

In the unlikely case that it does, how will this impact my OS9 disk utilties, such as Techtool3?

Im kinda sure that UNIX won't work well with my OS9, but I thought that I would ask just incase.

Cheers, any help appreciated. ty:)

uctuall I just made a search... so if UFS is not the Filesystem OSX has been made for, then I guess I shouldn't even consider it....??

OS X will run on ufs, but there are some trade-offs, as outlined in this thread (http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11573)
