We just scored a stack of ten beige Power Mac G3s, all of them labelled
as being 32MB/4GB/24xCD, three 233MHz/512k, seven 266MHz/512k.  I'm not
quite sure yet what we're going to do with ten beige G3s.  I figure
we'll set up two of them for the kids, and possibly cluster the other
eight at some later time.

Anyone have any suggestions on PCI ATA66/100/133 cards that will work in
these?  LowEndMac says the onboard EIDE interface is pretty slow.

Also, anyone have any compatible RAM in 128MB or larger sticks lying
around...?  I'd like to put at least 384MB in the ones we're going to
actually run, and 512MB or more would be better, in order to run OSX on
them.  They have three memory slots, up to 512MB per slot in low-profile
