I'm helping my brother "decommission" a defunct G4 that was running OS9/Jaguar. I have removed the internal HDD and am about to transfer the files onto an external HDD and wondered about the partition scheme it requires.
can a OS9 machine (the old Ti-Powerbook) read an external HDD (USB, no FW) that is partitioned using GUID, or should it be Apple partition? He doesn't intend to boot off the hard drive, just run some applications that resides on it that runs only on OS9.
Also should I spend the exta $$ to get FW on the HDD enclosures? the HDD will not be a boot drive.
