    At least in all the cases I've tried, only the test CD from the same model will work, though that may not always be the case. Can't hurt to try, since I don't know of any other way to get those test CDs.

    I would guess that, at the very least, you'd want a Hardware Test CD for a G3. Do you live anywhere near an Apple Store? They probably have one there for your system.

    Edit: perhaps this one?

    Thanks for the heads up, unfortunatly i am away at college, closest store is 2 hours away, but the good news is that my friend with the g4 got a g3 test cd from one of his friends for me to use.

    thanks!!!
