So that ultimately I could upgrade the machine as needed.
Thank you very much. Comment on this posting A good machine; I have similar one. Fine for what you say you want to do with it. As I'm sure you know, don't expect speed by today' standard.

Update! Mac Powerbook G4 needs latest OS, will the install disc I have work?
Not all PowerBook G4s top out at Many can run That being said, putting it on the internet isn't total disaster. You can go on-line as long as you're careful about what you run. There are very few if any pieces of PowerPC malware floating about. Any attack is likely to involve Intel code, which wouldn't run on a G4 box. But I wouldn't rely on this for safety unless the drive is completely devoid of any data you wouldn't want trashed or stolen.
If you're primarily using the PB for web browsing, I'd recommend avoiding Safari and use a current browser that has current security updates. Firefox 3. TenFourFox has ported Firefox 5.
Version 6. Of course, be sure to uninstall any insecure plugins like Flash , just in case you do run across some PPC malware. It's worth noting that TenFourFox version 6 will actually disable all plugin support, which is probably a good idea, since most plugin developers are no longer supporting PPC Macs. Your PowerBook G4 is not useless. Thank you for the in-depth, relevant information.
I really appreciate it.
