Does anyone know how to convert a Powermac G4 into a Streaming Music Server for an Android phone? I've been looking at programs like Subsonic and Audiogalaxy but they all require 10.5 (I'm running 10.4.11). Are there any guides out there?

Thanks in advance!

My mistake. I even missed that he said he had tried to use AG but couldn't. Sorry for my half brain dead antics here.

To the OP:

The best way to get the most out of PowerPC Macs these days is to use 10.5. I recommend an upgrade because virtually all software thats still developed for PowerPC and/or universal is 10.5 only. Using 10.4 is like a double limitation.

Would this G4 handle it? It's only got Dual Processor 500 MHz and 1.3 GBs of ram and ATI Rage 128 Pro with 16MB VRAM ... :/
