I have just upgraded my OS X to tiger, but along the way I needed a re-install (The computer has just Tiger now). I also have my os 9 disk and I would like to have that installed again. I did this once before with panther and was able to have both running at the same time. EX: I could be using a OS 9 perl writing program while still running my normal os X. How can I accomplish this again. I know I have to set it so that they both run at start-up but before I get to that... I wanna know how to installed them both.

After installing OS X, use your OS install CD to install OS 9.1. Then download and upgrade OS all the way to OS 9.2.

Then use the Classic startup prefs panel in OS X to set Classic to start on boot.
