I tried this on a machine with a similar setup (OS9 and OSX on separate 
partitions) and I have no problem. I tried both changing sys.path and 
changing one of the startup options, and everything worked fine.

Unless I get more reports of this I'm inclined to think it's something 
with your setup (maybe you're logged in as a user who somehow doesn't 
have permission to write in the OS9 system folder?).
