    I've put considerable research into this (I was looking to put a mini in an iMac G4) and I can tell you that it really just won't work. I haven't seen any adaptor for the internal connection of the iMac to its screen, so it would be better for you to invest in a display as opposed to stealing from the iMac. I'd say if you wanted to still use the iMac, just set the mini to allow screen sharing and have at it.

    setting the mini to share screen

    Sorry, "I'd say if you wanted to still use the iMac, just set the mini to allow screen sharing and have at it." I should have communicated better. What do I need to do and purchase to achieve screen sharing? The mini is so small I can hide it.:)
    Thanks,
    Nina
