    I know that through emulators one can run Windows XP on a mac. But i was wondering if it was possible to uninstall OSX and then install Windows XP on a G4 powerbook and have that be the main operating system. More of a curiosity question than anything else i guess... thanks

    Not possible unless you gutted the G4 and stuffed an x86 processor in there.

    And even then, it's not necessarily possible. Witness the problems people have trying to boot Windows on Intel Macs...
