    Ive found a reasonably cheap disc for 10.4.9 to upgrade my Power Mac G3 from 10.0.4, but i was curious if the disc being for a G5 has any impact on my ability to install on my G3.

    Yeah it probably won't work and it's not licensed correctly.

    I have to agree. You need to get a retail version of OS X. The discs that come with a Mac are for that model range only. It prevents pirating of their OS. It is a good idea.

    If you try it, let us know if it works.
