    Any suggestions as to what to do with an old G4 Graphite tower (350 mhz, 584 Mb RAM)? I was considering downloading Ubuntu server and using it as a practice box. Any better ideas?

    If you're going to consider Ubuntu, look for the latest version that they made for PowerPC. I could be wrong, but I don't think Gutsy Gibbon or Hardy Heron supported PowerPC

    I use my G4 tower as a server. Have 6 drives in it with a IDE card. Works great.
