Although its not neccessary, you could always partition the drive, and
install 9.2 on one and 10.2 on the other. You could then either run X,  run
9 in Classic Mode from X, or boot up from the 9 drive and run it entirely
in 9. Of course, that would require some double installs of software, but
it might be worth it. Adobe software is known to run slower in Classic
mode, so if you have Adobe software that you wont be upgrading for X, it
could make sense.
