Be forewarned that a Pismo (at least, mine at 400MHz) is not beefy enough to
play DVDs respectably under OSX.  I've heard that life is different under OS9,
but I do not boot into that OS, so I couldn't tell you.

I've seen it for both, but my eyes are on the G4/500 upgrade.  The 800MHz
upgrade has been EOLed now that the 900MHz upgrade is out.
