If it's the PCI only G4, support should be fairly complete, with the
exception of USB and FireWire (IEEE1394).  USB isn't complete in
2.2.x no matter what you do, and 1394 support isn't in 2.2.x at all.

The PCI only G4 uses exactly the same motherboard as the
Blue-and-White G3 minitower.  The only difference is that they didn't
put in an ADB connector and it has a G4 CPU installed instead of a
G3.  That means that any information you can find about running on
the B&W G3 will apply equally well to the PCI G4.
