Where great old Macs live again!

Hi Vintage Mac Fans,
I will be moving soon and I want to have a whole new desk set up. I am getting the Macbook Pro 13" but I also want a desktop. I don't want to get one of the new desktops so I am looking at some old ones. I have done some research and found one that I like, even though it was announced years ago but it still looks cool, the iMac G4. It has a nice flexible neck and is good for a cheap set up. Although I want to make it run on Apple's new software, Snow Leopard, but I can't because it has an IBM chip instead of an Intel chip.

Does any one know of a way I can upgrade the iMac G4, or is there a hack for Snow Leopard I can use on the iMac?

If its a Power PC processor then you can't run Snow leopard. there is no PPC boot sectors or PPC code for snow leopard
