    The question is this -- how would I set this up on a Mac G4 500 server that is still using Mac OS 9.2.2. Open firmware?

    Well, obviously you can't do what Apple is doing, because you're not running UNIX with OS9. I'm not very familiar with AppleScript, but you might be able to write a script that would delay a restart.

    why run OS9 on a G4? OSX client and server are both optimized for a G4 and as long as you have 512MB ram it will be nice and snappy on a G4 of any speed really.

    To comment on your question.. wouldn't installing 10.3 server let you do everything a mac server can?

    Can't do OS X 10.3 quite yet on this mail server. That's why I was curious whether it could be done in Open Firmware. It will be a feature I'll likely use when I move the server (or get a new server) to OS X.
