I went to pick up a RAID 5 server from a place and while loading it up, the ownder asked if I would take an old G3 PowerMac off of his hands. All he asks is that I burn any info I find off of it. I figured even if I do not use it, it was the least I could do for a free RAID 5 (!).

So, anyways... what is the latest version of OS X I can throw on this and what should I use it for?

If it's a beige G3, it'll (officially) support up to Jaguar (10.2.8). If it's a blue and white, it'll run Tiger.

You could use it for any number of different things. I have an older Power Mac that is currently used for file serving duties.

It's a blue and white.
