This will cover some notes about installing the OS X Server operating system.
Beige G3 systems as well as the blue & white G3 tower and G4 towers should run OS X Server without issue. You must also ensure the hard drive size being used for the OS X Server boot volume is no larger than 8GB. If you pre-partition a larger drive giving the first 8GB as OS X Server, this may work for you.
==Error: Desktop folder can't be created==
This error is displayed when performing the initial OS 9 side booting of the install media and you're using a badly created CD image. The error blocks the boot process before the Finder is available. The "Pele1Q10" image found at the Winworld site and other archives is confirmed to boot properly.
==Old World G3 can't boot OS X after PRAM battery failure==
If you install Mac OS X Server on an old world ROM based Macintosh without a working PRAM battery, the boot settings pointing to the UFS volume will be lost if power is removed from the system. You must either enter Open Firmware and manually point to the mach_kernel boot file or boot from the OS X Server installer CD and using the System Disk utility to select your existing UFS partition.
