    For a G3, you're better off installing 10.3 Panther

    Ouch. I get those for $5. I wouldn't pay any more than $25 for a G3 450 Mhz, 512 MB, 20 GB

    Do you need server? Just install 10.3 Panther and you're good to go

    I guess I dont. I'll have to see if I can find a copy of 10.3. I'm sure my copy is long gone. Is 10.3 a cd or DVD install?
