I seen another post on this topic the other day, it has something to do with the jumper settings on the hard drive. While, usually, you can just set the jumper to Master Drive and be done, Apple (from what I read) actually shorts out the two pins which basically forces the drive to be in MasterDrive mode. I can't seem to find the thread at the moment but I'm sure a Google search may give you more insight.Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.
