Found this. Not sure if it helps though.
Hopefully the experts will chime in soon.

You will be able to use your dvd writer assuming you have OS X. Preferably Tiger or higher. You will not be able to use the lightscribe feature as it is Windows proprietary. I though of getting one for my G3 until I found that out (way back when). Even though this is purely aesthetic you might want to make sure it will open when you push the button on the drive door flap.
