Be warned though, it will probably be very slow and it is not really for games. And Bootcamp on Intel Macs is totally different. G4 is not Intel so that is something you must live with or make a switch to Intel if you want more flexibility between windows and mac programs.

Yes, that's the only way. Some apps are just not made for Macs and there is really no way around it.
