He may also mean that they are pre-"New Age" Macs.  New Age Macs
meaning those can boot off the network and therefore can be "thin"
clients in the real sense of the word.  I *think* that 5400's can
boot off the net, but am not certain.  I'd seriously doubt than an
all-in-one can, though.

I wouldn't put anything later than OS 9 on a 5400 even if it had a
G3 daughter card and could be forced to install OS X.  OS X sucks
rocks with less than 256MB of memory...I put it down to that blasted
mach swap file system--which is very difficult to get and keep on a
different disk/chain from the main os disk.
