Share Explorer info between Classic and OS X Classic
If you regularly switch back and forth between OS X and Classic, and would like to keep all your bookmark and history information current, it's actually quite simple. This thread on the MacFixit Forums discusses a number of ways to do it, but "Toyin" has the best solution.

Start by making aliases of your Favorites.html and History.html files in OS 9. These are stored in System Folder:Preferences:Explorer. Take the aliases, and move them into /users/username/library/preferences/Explorer/. Replace the existing files (make a backup first if you wish), and (obviously, I hope!) replace username with your OS X user name.

Now whether you surf under OS 9 or OS X, your history and bookmarks will be common between both environments. You could probably reverse the process as well, and make aliases of the OS X files and place them in the OS 9 prefs folder (but I haven't tried that yet to be sure).
