That is not exactly correct. After installing Tiger on a Wallstreet
with three partitions (OS X 7.45GB, OS 9 5GB, documents the rest of
80GB) so to have OS X in the first 8GB, I read that actually the "8GB
limit" just applies to where the OS X partition "begins", i.e. it has
to start in the first 8GB but not necessarily be contained in them.

So I reinstalled it successfully, eventually having 1GB for OS 9 and
the rest of the 80GB disk for Tiger. All this done with XPF 4 and
many messages from Apple Discussions.

Here are the full summaries of my experiences. As you may already
know, you can find even more in the forum

Hope it helps.
