I have a two year old 21" iMac, and run a 5 year old Apple 21" Cinema Display as a second screen. it requires a largish white adapter, but it works fine.

I also have two old PowerMacs - a pre-MDD G4 and a dual processor G5, and I run them both headless via screen sharing from my iMac. I just boot them on my Ethernet and screen share into them to log on and do work. This is not as fast as having a monitor on the system in use, but it's nowhere near slow enough to be bothersome. I recommend it. You don't need a full set of GUI peripherals to run OS X 10.4 and later.

Rather than spend several hundred dollars for a new one, for $1070.00 I can buy a new 21.5 inch iMac. The old monitor is a Sony Trinitron CRT. My question is--what problems can I expect to encounter when I hook up the old G4 to the new iMac. The G4 is configured with the original 40 gig HD with 1.5 gigs of RAM. I have installed two 500 gig HD's for storage. Each is partitioned into three sections. The OS for the G4 is Tiger version 10.4.11. Thanks.
