Hey I was wondering if this would work. Ok, essentially what I want to do is this: When I get my tax returns back I'll have $375. I'm going to see if I can borrow some money from my dad to buy a Mac Mini. Well, I have an iMac G3 333MHz (see siggy). Now would I be able to open it up and connect the VGA Adapter that is connected to the motherboard to my Mac Mini and use it as a monitor for the Mac Mini? Anyone tried this? Lemme know
(here's a brief simple idea of it all)
Take iMac VGA, connect it to Mac Mini have it work.

Nope it won't work, its a DB-15 port, whereas the Mac Mini only comes with DVI and DVI->VGA connectors. Dang it. Still I want a mac mini.
