I have a Imac G3 motherboard I got out of a broken imac. I have been using it on and off for years with gentoo.
They are becoming free everywhere since you typically have to pay to dispose of them and small nice motherboards.
With a $1 connector they can be connected to a VGA monitor.
They have ethernet and I think 2 USB 1.1, ATA, and some sort of cd drive connector, modem slot etc.
I have 256 MB of pc-133 memory working in one.
233 or 333 mhz processors etc.
Can run off an old pc power supply etc

These boards can be used for:
Apache server for testing.
Network Testing tool
logging tool
LAN gentoo rsync server
Streaming music server or music player
Firewall / gateway
Wifi access point / repeater etc
Car stereo
Back up's appliance
Open Bios experiment
Mother board resoldering experiment
Cups print server for several devices in one spot.

It is kind of a hassle to emerge stuff on these since they are slow.
I made a cross compiler for this a wile ago and am thinking of messing with it again.
Is anyone interested in a headless stage 4 for theses?
Or are these a wast of time.

I'd be interested in such a stage. I want to install gentoo on IMac G3 myself, but will most likely use cross-platform toolchain to build packages. Can you provide your kernel .config and make.conf?

BTW, what modem does G3 have? Does it work with Gentoo (important for me)?
