Sound like the disk structure is going south, or those hidden directories are missing.

Have you got the restore disks for that old G4

If so start up from the restore disk (press C on startup with the disk in)

When the install screen comes up, go up to the menu bar and select Utilities > Disk Utility

Run a disk repair from there and see of it finds any problems with the G4's disk
