Hi, you'd want to up the RAM to 1GB.
10.5.8 Server can be expensive, & is the highest you can run.
10.5.8 client can do just about everything 10.5.8 Server can do... what exactly do you want to do?

hi Aqua, nice to hear from you. Ok ....i need to up the RAM. I can see that your advise is to just stick to the retail 10.5.
Actually i just want a server for my media files and documents which i work at home.....nothing any sort of bisness stuffs, maybe my ambition was to big...ha ha...
So ....do you think...running barracudadrive would be good idea or am i just about to mess up the mini G4..... thx for your time.....

Oh, then all you likely need to do is enable File Sharing in System Preferences>Sharing, though maybe iTunes Sharing in tTunes prefs.
Do you mean internally for the barracudadrive? You could, or better yet ust add an external Firewire 400 Drive, bigger capacities, Mini runs cooler, possibly more reliable/longer lasting drive, right column here...

i had already enabled file sharing..... thx..... actually after digging deeper.... i tried and have found out that a backup server is what i need ..... gave a swing to Chornosync .... its fab,,,,,just wht i was looking for ..... sycns in the push of a button..... real cool ware,,,,
