I've been running OSX on a Beige G3 233 with 128M of memory. Speedwise it's
"OK"- not great, but definitely usable.

Check macintouch.com or macfixit.com for the "update_prebinding" fix; it
made an approx 20% subjective difference in speed as far as I can tell.
Supposedly this is where the performance increase comes from installing the
devtools, but running it on it's own couldn't hurt.

I haven't tried the 10.0.1 update yet- we've had water in the basement here,
and so have been keeping electrical usage to a minimum!
