Any version before Mac OS X 10.2 didn't support real-time applications, which is essential for audio application... I think CoreMIDI was also not fully implemented. So, no, won't work.
Why do you care about such an old OS?

The oldest version (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL581) I could find is Garageband 1.1,
Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later
Mac OS X 10.2.8 or greater recommended
It looks like you never updated to a newer version of MacOS X. With MacOS X 10.2 you should still be able to run any old MacOS 9 applications in the Classic environment, if you want to save your older drivers and applications.

What is a "real-time" application? I have other apps that seem to work just fine.
I'm using this OS on an old iMac G3 Tangerine that I picked up, and an old copy of 10.0 is all I had that was compatible. I have somebody interested in doing some basic garageband stuff on it, and was wondering if such an app even existed.

OK, too complicated here. In short: any version before 10.2 doesn't support audio applications. The audio would drop out e.g. if you click on a menu item, move a window, etc.
