Title:

How many OSs can I run?

Text:

I have a 1GB 1.42GHz, 80GB Combo, Airport Extreme eMac running 10.5.8.
 
I was wondering if I could partition my hard drive to run older versions of Mac OS. For example, like bootcamp, you would be able to hold alt at start-up and the different partitions would show.
 
Would it be possible to have Mac OS X, Mac OS 9, Mac OS 8 and so on on separate partitions?
 
If it's just a case of using firewire target mode or something that would be great.
 
Also, does anyone know where I could download working builds of old Mac OSs?
 
Thanks
 
== UPDATE ==
I have those 19 files now but when I click on the first one it opens a folder with old OS files in. I cannot open them as "the classic environment is no longer supported."
 
How do I make an image out of them, and how do I partition my hard drive?
 
Thanks again
