Hi Dan,

Although not a Cube, I use an old (1998) G3 MT with a 400Mhz G3 and
640MB RAM and an internal 16GB IDE drive to store my music library.
Running OS X 10.2.8 on the main drive, a 4GB IDE drive..

It seems to do just fine, but only use the box as a music and print
server, never have any problems printing when serving music or
streaming music when printing.

It seems that a 450-500 MHz cube should do just fine, but as others
have said, get lots of RAM maybe at least 512 MB.

IHTH, Just MHO, and YMMV
