mac mini hardware Q

I am drooling over the specs I read about the new mini and it's new mini price. Can I, an old G4 user, use an outside drive for my older software that Lion won't run? I read on Lowendmac about stepping backward to Snow Leopard, would that help? Could I run the 10.4 drive off of it, say as apartition on the Lion main drive. I can't see buying an older mini or G5 for almost as much money, but my color-it and photoshop are very important in my line of work.

Color-It is still being developed, but the dev says they haven't gotten a new 10.7 compatible version out yet, so you may want to hold off for a bit. You may also want to look at alternatives and "plan Bs" for Color-It if they don't get their act together (I'm sure they will, BUT it never hurts to know what "plan B" would be if you needed it).
