[HM] Beige G3 Tower and 10.xx

Well, it depends. Your beige G3 tower should be able to run on Jaguar 
(10.2), as long as you have enough RAM. You're pretty much required to 
have at least 128 MB of RAM, and 256 MB of RAM is highly recommended 
for decent performance.

Apple says that the latest version, OS X Panther (10.3) cannot run on a 
computer without built-in USB, which excludes your beige G3. So Jaguar 
will be the last version of Mac OS you will be able to run on your 
beige G3 without upgrading, but if you have the RAM, I'd definitely 
recommend getting Jaguar; it's much nicer than OS 9. :)
