yes, but you would need to take the guitar apart and install bracing. which would make it sound crap, due to materials/body size. just don't do it.

Didn't you just read anything above you? The increased tension of steel strings would snap the neck. Many classical guitars don't have a truss rod. At the very least, it would probably bow the neck pretty bad, and it be pretty unplayable.

^ That will cause the neck to bow like nobody's business.

A majority of classical guitars aren't build with truss rods, and at the very least have a strip of harder wood to act like a truss rod. This is because nylon strings have very little tension compared to the steel string acoustic strings.
 |Classical | Steel stinged |
E|  7.08 kg |   10.57 kg    |
B|  5.12 kg |   10.57 kg    |
G|  5.23 kg |   13.70 kg    |
D|  7.55 kg |   13.83 kg    |
A|  6.79 kg |   13.56 kg    |
E|  6.27 kg |   11.79 kg    |

Total (Classical, .28-.43)    | 38.04 kilograms of tension
Total (Steel String, .12-.53) | 74.02 kilograms of tension

Both are very standard guages of strings for each guitar.

EDIT: There's 35.96 kilogram difference in tension. Almost an 80 pound difference.

I have steel strings on my nylon acoustic.. It's holding up okay for about 6 months now. It has ZERO tuning stability though. It's only a 3/4 though so maybe since it's shorter that gives it a bit more strength.

It will cause a "bump" in the soundboard and the soundboard will tend to dip in towards the soundhole. Not to mention any problems with the neck

In short, not a good idea.
