    It means your Mac was a server at some point. This is nothing to worry about - it dates from the time before Apple created the XServe, and used modified tower Macs as their servers.

    Uh...

    NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS HERE.

    Lay off the all caps, man. It's really not a big deal.

    The OP is just being funny ;)

    I think it's quite cool to own a Macintosh Server G3! Much rarer than the "normal" G3 B&W.

    Did you by any chance get the original CD's?
    ASIP or maybe even Mac OS X Server 1.x??? :cool:

    Just out of curiosity, what does B&W stand for in this context? It's obviously not black and white.

    It stands for Blue and White.
