A 'Classic' in its own right, that one! Perhaps where the documentation
it means Windows 95 and earlier . . .
Err . . . Windows (Classic)
Of course part of the problem is the people at Apple who invented that
silly use of the
word 'classic' (as in 'outmoded') and started renumbering OS releases in
a way inconsistent
with prior practise. Mac OS X 10.5 should be called Mac OS 15; and then
it would be easy
enough to use "Mac OS 9", "Mac OS 10", "Mac OS 11" and so forth without
At least the people at Microsoft have woken up and are calling there
"Next Big Thing" a
really sensible name: "Windows 7"!

I'm not sure if I can see much point in that, as, as far as I understand,
versions of RR for Mac OS 9 have been discontinued.
Face facts; the documentation needs a complete overhaul.
