Yes. As I've done many attemps, I'll say it in a generic way :
With Mac OS 9.0.3, I create 2 partitions. The first is 'unallocated', 9GB.
Second is Mac OS 9 one, HFS, 1 GB. MacOS9 works nicely until I try to install

I don't think so, as OS9 works nicely until Debian is installed.

Thanks for your attention.
