As I have said in my earlier post, my ibook g3 is running OS X 10.2 Server. I also read in the g5 server thread that Processor speed doesn't matter with a file server.

I know that with older computers they cannot read a size of a hard drive over a certain limit, but in this scenario with the ibook g3, since it's external will it still be read as a smaller size? If so what will it be?

For an internal drive, the limit is 128GB, I don't think that would affect an external drive though.....

Yes, internal drives are limited to 128GB. External ones from what I've found out by experience (and from reading online) are generally limited to 500GB's.
