OS 9 problem

in Mac Software edited January 2014

I installed Mac OS 9.2.1 on an iMac Original G3 333 Mhz on a 850 mb Partition and it used up about 300 mb of space.

Problem: When I installed it 9.2.1 on a Powerbook Pismo (another computer) in a 1 gb partition, the OS took up about 700 mb (??). The installation on both computers was nearly identical. I even installed a bit less on the Pismo. The only time the size of the OS seemed right is when i started the computer up from a CD (holding down 'c') and i checked the partition's info (about 200 mb used). On both OS X and 9 it flies up to 700 mb. Any suggestions? Help would be greatly appreciated.
