I've run 10.3 on mine; yes, it's very slow--and you're best advised to
allocate plenty of disk space if you opt for the complete set of CDs,
including the development tools.  While you could fit 9.x comfortably on
a 250 MB drive, that's not the case for OS X.

Also (please correct me if I'm wrong), you lose the integrated floppy
