I hate to say it this way but $60 for a G3 as a thin clients would be a 
waste of money IMHO...I just got 2 G3's, and 3 G4's for $200. all with 
OS/X on them...and...well I'll stop and let you decide...
but $60 EACH is absurd for a G3 when you can get a BRAND NEW thin client 
that takes much less space/power/etc...for $100 to $150...or FREE from 
freegeek.org(or your local hospital when they do their routine swap-outs 
if you can develop a relationship with their CIO =)
