It depends whether you want to use the MacOS other than to boot into
Debian. If you don't then c.300mb should be ample for OS9.0 if you
leave out all the non essential stuff. You'll need a browser to download
bootx again or save it somewhere to copy back onto your new Mac install.
There are probably mac partitioning tools out there which will allow you
to resize an existing partition but I've never used one. On a recent
installation on a beige G3 I booted from the OS9 CD, used the disk
utility to create a 300mb partition on which to install OS9.0 and left
the rest as free space to be partioned during the sarge install.
