Here it is plain and simple: The goal: Media server for photos, music, and movies. What I know: nuthin' What I have: Power Mac G4 733 mhz, 512 meg Ram. Model: M8493 -An Iomega Zip drive !?! (I think) -An optical drive. -usb mouse. -No monitor, no key board - I'm getting them. -The previous owner says the hard-drive IS BAD. What I need: Advice and any "heads-up" you can give me. The story: I picked it up at a charity for $10. It turns on. The fans spin up and the CPU and GPU warm up. I have plugged a monitor into the smaller graphics socket and got power but no image of any kind. I don't want to shell out big $$$ for this thing until I know it will be worth it. How would the experts go about diagnosing and building this tower. Oh, I have two macbooks (his and hers) made last year. Love them. Might they help? Thanks! MattSCATTERED!!!!
