Have you opened it to verify that it's a sawtooth? If it is, the heatsink on the CPU will be very large and the board will look like this (sorry if this is really basic, I don't know what your knowledge of the inner workings of computers is, I mean no offense at all ):
Note that the top (rightmost) slot on the left side of the pic is brown and set farther back on the board than the other 3 white slots. That'd be an AGP slot.

Compare that to a G3/G4 Yikes! board (which, unfortunately, is pictured from a different perspective):
The leftmost slot on the right side of the pic is white like the other 3, and the front edge lines up with the other 3 as well. The CPU heatsink (silver thing at the back of the pic) is also very small.

As far as upgrades go, take a look at this post and see if it helps you at all. I posted it in another sawtooth upgrade thread last night:
