    I believe you will need a sata controller, I think your computer had IDE connections.

    I have the same computer (G4 MDD with dual 867MHz G4). It does not have SATA on-board the motherboard, so you will have to purchase a SATA controller card that is compatible with OSX. The G4 MDD should also support large PATA IDE drives as well, 250GB and larger. I think Seagate makes a 750GB PATA IDE drive now...
