A little while back i was given an iBook with a faulty screen as in not working at all.
Having a hard time just throwing it away i was looking for a way to put it to use though it was a fairly old 500mhz G3 ibook.
Things being as they where i thought the only thing to do was using it as a server though it would mean quite a makeover, but thus the fun.

First of all we need to take the ibook apart to remove screen, Optical drive and battery. All of these aren’t necessary since we are building a server, “but what about restoring of OSX, don’t we need the hard-drive for that?” Actually you don’t since you can do it just as well in target mode from another hard-drive. Another thing we need to keep in mind is that we really want to keep the footprint of the ibook as small as possible.
