When selecting a Classic system folder, I get "Classic Preferences is unable to save or read preferences. Classic cannot start."

Classic starts and runs well from two other accounts. All are admin accounts.

This is a new install of 10.4.6 with copy of previous user files. Yes, I have repaired permissions, both OS X and OS 9.

Any ideas?

Trash com.apple.Classic*.plist in the user's preferences. Mine has a long number after "Classic" which is why I put in the *.
