    Powerbook as a spare display?
    I have an old PowerPc G3 that i am fixing up for a friend.

    Is there anyway that i can use my powerbook G4 as a display for it?

    All the best.

    Is the G3 a Firewire model? If so connect with firewire cable, plug keyboard into G3 start and hold down T key and then start the G4 and the G3 HD icon will show up on desktop.
