That's my configuration apart from the RAM. Great machine, but upgrade the RAM to 1gb (it's a relatively easy job). 256mb just isn't enough.

I have been running Tiger on my 1.25Ghz G4 Mini from the first week Tiger was released. Runs GREAT but Upgrade your RAM. 256Megs is really not even enough for Panther leave alone tiger. I would go to at least 512 Megs but have a Gig here and it's smooth as can be in Tiger.
