Also, I think you could have de-selected the classic folder under classic and been able to delete it from the finder as per normal. Oh well, you deleted it already now, and so it is a little late to try that suggestion this time.
I did not install OS 9 at all when I made a clean install of Jaguar this time. I have no need for it now.
Cool that's why I did and it worked.... I had to go in to the terminal to remove that also I am getting pretty good with the Terminal any one know of any good sites to get and learn commands?

If you really aren't sure about keeping os9 on your machine, then take your OS9 System folder (and anything else you may want) and put it on a disk image. Then whenever you need to use classic, just open the image, select it in the Classic pane and start it up.

heh, with Jaguar you don't have to delete thins from the Terminal like that. Just "get info" on the parent folders you want to delete and change the ownership!

That's what I tired first Eugene but it wouldn't work. But it isn't hard to go in the Terminal either. Put if I did try changing all the ownership and permissions on them and I had no luck so I just did it in seconds though the terminal.
