Hi all

I have a mac g3 Blue and white motherboard that is mounted in an marathon server case, when i got it it had no hard drive and no ram also had no cd drive, so after a few days putting it together and messing around with it i got it to at least chime on start up which took about three weeks to accomplish, so any way im now trying to install tiger but when i start it it shows the apple screen with the spinning wheel and it just stays like that for hour and goes now where.

any one have any ideas?

I Really need this to work I'm thinking of maybe selling it to a friend and/or i want to use it for its original intended purpose as a small server.
