Hi, I own an iMac G4, eMac, and Macbook. and I was wondering if I could install leopard in the iMac G4. The G4 is 800MHz. I would really like to do this before the Macworld Expo and Snow Leopard. If I could have answers before those times, It would be great! Thanks!

Specs for Leopard call for 867MHz processor as minimum. Sure if you Google you will find ways to get around this, but at what cost to performance? With an 800MHz processor suggest maxing out the RAM and using Tiger OS X.4.11.
