    That will be a difficult machine to use... the G3's of any kind cant go much further than 10.3 and to really go on the internet, you need 10.4.11, and even that is becoming hard to use since Apple dropped support for 10.4 and the java scripts that are up to date are 10.5 or 10.6. That machine has limited usability... what are thinking of doing with it?

    Just my 2¢ but any $ or stress you dump into it would be better put into a cheaper mac mini or ibook G4 or something like that.
