Sharepoint Foundation 2010 authentication mode

In Sharepoint Foundation 2010, can a web application co-exist "Claims Based Authentication" with "classic" mode?

I just migrated my Sharepoint Services version 2.0 to Sharepoint Foundation 2010 in my lab.  In my WSS 2.0, the authentication was using "classic" mode, therefore when I migrated to SPF 2010 which was original set "claims" mode as default, my normal user account cannot logon back to those sites until I re-set authentication mode to classic and re-add the content database back.  Now, my SPF is using classic mode for those sites that created in WSS 2.

Because the claims mode that came with SPF 2010 has more benefits then the classic mode, therefore just want to find out what is the best practice to have claims mode in SPF2010 while the user can access to the old sites with classic mode.

thanks!

Set AAM - alternate access mapping for intranet/internet and use claim based auth for that newly created alternate access mapping.
