    what kind of TV and which video/audio connection are you wishing to use?

    im going to assume you have an LCD/Plasma with HDMI. you going to have to use a DVI-HDMI cable and either a mini jack to optical audio cable or mini jack to RCA audio cable.

    p.s. i would recommend updating to 10.4.11 as the updates have made Tiger super stable and secure.

    I've used a Mini-DVI > DVI (female) adapter (apple sells this one). Then a DVI (male) > HDMI (female) adapter. Then just a regular HDMI cable to the TV. Works a treat for me, however I think you may get some overscan depending on which type of TV you have.

    EDIT: Sorry forgot to mention that this option doesn't transmit sound to your TV
