Potential Time Machine backup drive?

I have an iMac G4 (outdated, I know, don't judge) running Leopard 10.5.8 on a 60 GB hard drive (really only 55 GB). I also have a 320 GB 2.5" hard drive sitting on a shelf, which I'm not currently...

Exclamation Replaced DVD drive, missing copper strips?

I have an iMac G4 800 MHz, whose combo drive died a few months ago. I have replaced it with a generic DVD-RW drive, and it works fine. However, I am missing one of the copper strips (more like the...

Install (from what I can tell, I slept through it, haha) took long but went well. The Mac OS X Leopard intro screen greeted me when I woke up, good timing, huh? I entered all my stuff into it, and it...

I've gotten the installer to boot! Converted it to DMG, copied it to my PC, and restored it to the flash drive via TransMac, did an OpenFirmware hack, and it's installing as I type this. :)

I've booted the Tiger installation from this same drive before, so it will boot from USB.

I used a purple disc with a big black "X" on it.

It was not used directly in the Mac though. I ripped...

Trimmed Leopard, won't write to USB.

I have an iMac G4, and I did this all on it.

I trimmed the OS X Leopard install DVD so it would fit on my 8GB flash drive, and I was trying to restore it to my USB drive, but I keep getting error...

Exclamation Burnt out optical drive?

So, my iMac G4 isn't dead. But I think the optical drive is. A while ago, I smelled something burning from my iMac, I thought it was the iMac itself, but I've come to the conclusion it was my optical...

Replacement for iMac G4

My iMac G4 is dying. It was running fine until a day ago when I started smelling burning electronics, and now it's having all sorts of problems.

The point is, I'm not going to be using it anymore....

Who says PowerPCs can't boot from USB?

I have heard many places that PowerPC Macs cannot boot from USB, without advanced coding in Open Firmware.

I ripped my Mac OS X...

If you can afford the G5 over the G4, get the G5. If you would rather pay less, get the G4. YouTube works, but it lags. Facebook is fine, and iChat runs well too.

It's actually relatively fast. Definitely not anywhere near the 3.0 GHz the new Macs have, but it's good enough for what I use it for (web surfing, iPhoto, Office, and occasionally GarageBand).

Leopard on PowerPC G4 800 MHz?

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?

I just read that it's not possible to install any OS older than the one that was on it when it left the factory.

Apparently, this iMac only supports Panther and Tiger. (I think it might be one of...

Yes, it is a retail CD, and it is clean. There was OS X Tiger on it before, and it had no problems reading CD's and DVD's. Currently there is no OS on the hard drive.
