Salvaging stuff from a dead G4 iMac.
Recently, my G4 800MHz 17" iMac died. I got it checked out an an apple centre, and they said the logic board was dead, and repairs would be over $1000, so obviously it isn't worth getting it repaired. I'm going to salvage the hard drive, which is still fully operational.
I have two questions;
-If i salvage the optical drive, can I buy a case for it and use with with my MacBook?
-Can i use the iMac's display as a second monitor for my MacBook? ie is there any way to make the display VGA/DVI compatible?

can you help a little?
Please look at my post too:
I think your iMac is quite similar to mine.
Do you know what voltages the BLUE and WHITE wires carry?
