Best of both
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Apr 05, '05 01:20:01AM

For those who wisely believe it's best to wait to try 10.4, but don't really want to wait, you can have the best of both worlds: if your Mac can hold a second hard drive, install one, or if it can't, back up your single hard drive and partition it into two volumes, restore your backup to the first volume, and install 10.4 onto the second drive/volume. If 10.4 causes you too much trouble, etc., just reboot from your pre-10.4 volume, and wait until the 10.4 bugfixes start appearing before you try it again.

a partition on an external firewire hard drive is also a nice and simple option. i did it when 10.3 came out.

...or even on an iPod, although it would wear out the hard drive if you use it too much! (i wouldnt recommend it!)
