    Unfortunately, Snow Leopard does not support the G4 (PowerPC) processor. It will only support Intel-based Macs.

    The furthest you can go is OS 10.5 (Leopard), but only if your G4 processor is 867Mhz or faster. But that install disk is hard to find, and was about $129. If you call Apple, they "might" still have a disk in their "Legacy Store" or through "AppleCare".
