    Yes. And if you up the ram to 256mb you can install tiger, but you have to find the rare cd version of tiger cuz im sure your computer doesnt have a dvd reader.

    Yep, my girlfriend is on a 333mHz running 10.3 right behind me.

    The only way I was able to get it to work is to clone the harddrive from an iBook that had 10.3 installed on it and got put out of service. Popped the cloned HD in, and it booted right up. I'm sure just using the installer discs will work, it just wouldn't for me, it yielded kernel panics.

    Have fun!
