Is it possible, and/or easy, to install OS X Leopard on an iMac flat-panel with a PowerPC G4 800 MHz processor, and 512 MB of RAM, even if it isn't by normal means?

It is possible if you Google it, and no doubt you should first install more memory. Your model will take 1GB but to be honest, it will be extremely slow so best to stay with Tiger OS X.4.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
