I recently reformatted my hard drive in my PowerBook (FireWire).  Before doing so, I used Retrospect Express 4.3 to make a backup to an external drive.  I then reformatted the drive, installed OS 10.1.3 on one partition and OS 9.2.1 on a second partition.  I then restored all the other files from the backup.  Now all of the icons for the older applications are generic.  I tried running Norton's Disk Doctor (OS 9 version) but that did not help.  How do I restore the icons for these older applications?

Rebuild your desktop database while booting into OS 9. (command-option at startup, or by using the Classic control panel to do a rebuild)

Actually, that suddenly occurred to me last night.  I did it and it worked.  The complete re-orientation to OS X I think caused me to forget the basics of the previous systems.
