With a Mac G4 can I connect it to a regular CRT monitor or does it have to be a Mac. Same question with the keyboard and mouse. Also, I'd like to add a second HDD for Kubuntu Linux. Would a regular IDE drive work? Thanks.

1• You should have no problem with the CRT, if the video card has a DVI on it you'll need an vga / dvi connector.

2• You can use any keyboard and mouse your heart desires

3• Yep, if there is enough space for it, it should take the ata drive just fine.

Like Ghostshadow said you shouldn't have any problems. My G4 has both VGA and DVI so you shouldn't have a problem there. My CRT's as PC as you can get (Daewoo)
