Improve Classic Performance Even More Classic
This may be an obvious one for the power users, but still:

If you only plan to use OSX you can just do this, otherwise you may want to have a separate OS9 install for classic and one for booting into natively.

Don't install 9.1 taking the defaults. Choose a custom installation and rmove all the extras (text to speech, IE/Outlook, etc) basically only installing "Base" and the default networking. You may also want Quicktime and the standard fonts. Beyond that you don' t need the rest of OS9 to run apps under OSX, as OS X does much of the work for OS 9.

By removing all the extra I've reduced my Classic launch time from a minute and twenty seconds to twenty-two seconds.

What files

Do you think you could give us a list of all of the files that you now have in your OS 9.1 System folder? That would help some of us trim down our classic to make it as fast as yours.
