Well, I got a copy of Panther server off ebay (new, unused) and I have a 1.4GHz G4 mac mini laying around that I will finish switching to SSD (mSATA w/ J20332 adapter).
As I understand the process, I need to put the mini into firewire target mode, boot my G3 Pismo up with Disc 1, install everything onto the Mini, and then all the updates, and then I can just use the Mini with 10.3.9 Server.
Is that still the preferred way?
I believe Panther server will install with a G3 Pismo from what I have read.
I stil have a working NewerTech/OWC v2.5 Firewire external drive for it that I'll put a new drive into. (1TB RED WD)
This would make a nice file/print server for home and still allow for legacy OS 9 to connect and access shares/printers. Sound right?
