G'day and welcome to the forums.

Is it an iMac or is it a Cube as you seem a little confused as to what you want? The Cube was the forerunner of the Mac Mini and if you do a Google you will find Cube owners forums on the 'net. This is a G4 cube:-

Later Minis were faster:-

Whatever it is upgrade the OS to X.4.11 for starters and PowerPC processors have limitations but will do what you ask well, particularly if it is a later 1.25GHz or faster iMac.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
