    no problem , nice iMac G4
    easy just click on the small apple in the left top corner of your iMac 's display and select "about this Mac"

    as the iMac G4 was produced between 700mhz and 1.25 ghz and OS(x) 10.2.xx , 10.3.xx, 10.4.xx , 10.5.xx could be installed but i guess according your picture its either 10.3 or 10.4

    and how much ram you got

    yes that explains a lot , 800mhz are fine, but 10.2 is really a old version of OSX so a upgrade is recommended
    you should get a RETAIL disc (not the grey disc's as they are model specific only) for OSX 10.4 (tiger ) you need at least 256mb ram for tiger , but that is the absolute minimum to run tiger , so i urge to get more ram too , that should sort out all your internet surfing experience

    once you done that install flashplayer 10.1 for Mac
    and install the app click to flash http://clicktoflash.com/

    and youtube look here http://www.youtube.com/html5
