    Unfortunately no you cannot upgrade a G4 machine to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) as it requires a Mac with an Intel processor.

    Depending on the speed of your G4, you may be able to upgrade to Leopard (OS X 10.5) if you are able to obtain a copy of the DVD. (System Requirements are in Apple support article: HT3759 )

    Apple no longer sells this product, and you would have to find a third party that still sells this.
