I think there are people on these boards who have tried it succesfully, just back everything up and give it a shot.

OS X runs fine on 2 g3 powerbooks I have. One is a 333 Hz and the other is a 500 Mhz pismo. Both have 512 meg of ram. I use them as iTune servers and 10.3.9 is running great. :miner:

You don't mention which G3 you have but most models will run Panther without problems if you have enough RAM. The other issue is that OS X install disks that are produced for a specific model, as yours is for an iMac, usually do not work for other models.

I am running panther on my ibook g3 800. I plan to order tiger on friday when I get paid. Panther runs so well, I am sure there won't be a problem with tiger. Apple is very good about not increasing the minimum requirements for an os too much.

This link should give you all of the information you need to install Panther on your machine using an application called XPostFacto. If you need any help, let me know, because I've done the installation a number of times.
