If I get a copy of OS X, will the computer boot straight from the cd or would I have to find a serial or PS/2 mouse to use to set the startup disk to the OS X cd?

Specs for the G3:

300MHz processor
384MB RAM
30Gig hdd

Thanks all.
Oh and as for your other problem if your G3 is blue you can install most any flavor of OSX, if it is beige I'm not sure it will run anything over 10.2 'Jaguar' so you need to check that out before you spend any $$. good luck.
