Hre's what I did...

The first time you run Classic, you need to start it from an HFS+ partition.

The solution is in the Tech Info Library in the form of an article for the public beta. See: . however, I couldn't find "Classic" in "Applications" in the release version.

Instead, copy Classic Startup from /System/Library/CoreServices to your HFS+ drive/partition, then double click that copy in the finder. This should start you up in classic for the first time. (From then on it will start from there automatically).

Hope this helps.

I read this TIL on the Apple page, and it definitely seems to match what you're describing. Follow his instructions, and you should be good to go.

A general comment - everything I've read has said that HFS+ is the way to go for an OS X install, unless you absolutely need the UNIX file system formatting. There have been reports of speed hits from UFS, and there's this Classic compatability issue that you've run into. If you can do it, it may be worth your trouble to make your OS X volume HFS and not UFS.
