I am being given a gift of a MAC OS X G4 dual processor Server. It is a tower, not a rack-mount, OS version 10.2.8. Not knowing anything about servers, can I use this as a regular computer (like the G4 I currently own), and ignore or delete the server software? In other words, is the "server" simply software, or is there a hardware component that is different from a regular computer?

QUOTE Thanks
