The old SETI classic application is incompatible with the new SETI application. So you can not use it together with the BOINC based SETI@home. The old SETI classic servers was switched of, and reused in the BOINC based SETI project.

Also, the actual SETI@home Enhanced Multibeam application does a lot of more science computing compared with the SETI Classic version. So the actual SETI application is a lot of more sensitiver.

There is no BOINC client and SETI application for MacOS 9 available. The minimum MacOS version is 10.3.9.
