I installed Panther (10.3) on a Wallstreet PB, but needed a program 
called XPostFacto in order to do it.

I can't recall offhand if a Lomband is the model just after or before 
the Wallstreet, but if you'll Google for "XPostFacto" or search for it 
at macupdate.com, I imagine you would find a developer page that may 
spell out exactly how make OS X run on an unsupported model.

I think you meant "384MB," but in any event I'm running my Wallstreet 
(300MHz G3) with it and for the basic things I use it for (web surfing 
on the couch, primarily), it runs just fine despite the low RAM and 
poor video card. I wouldn't DREAM of firing up Photoshop on this (I 
laugh just thinking about it), but for very simple stuff it's perfectly
