Hello. Is there any way that I can connect my G4 iMac to 20" ACD? Thanks.

It appears that there is a mini-vga port on the iMac G4s, although you will only be able to mirror the display, so it won't be of much use to you. (And the maximum external resolution is only 1024x768 according to Mactracker)

You can always use an app called Screen Spanning Doctor (http://www.macupdate.com/download.php/15401/ScreenSpanningDoctor.dmg) to extend to an external monitor instead of just sharing it. You can increase the resolution also and are not just limited to the iMacs native resolution.

The Aluminum ACDs 20" used DVI correct while the Acrylic used ADC which was DVI but with power and data all in one cable. The iMac G4s only had VGA out? So I don't think you can hook it up anyways unless you get a converter maybe?
