    Your G4 should have come with 2 gray "restore" discs with the OS on them
    If you do not have them, you can contact Apple to get replacements at a small cost

    This could be considered to be a situation where it would be morally acceptable in many people's eyes to download the OS via a torrent, although this would still be technically illegal. Panther(10.3) or Tiger(10.4) are your best bet with a G4, tending towards Tiger in my opinion.

    Not necessarily recommending that you follow this course of action. The previous poster was quite right about getting a set of original discs.

    And you can't install XP on a G4 without already having OS X installed and virtualized.

    I guess another option would be Linux, no?
