Hmmm...it's been over a year since I used an AIO. I could have sworn it had a custom video card, so that maybe tricky. I bet if you rewire the cable and have it go into a VGA adapter for Mac displays, you could get it to work through the onboard VGA on a mini ATX board.
At the moment, I'm at work, so I'm unable to verify this.

well, I say, rip the guts out and put them in a new box for a carputer and use the case for something else. It is definitely the ugliest computer that "I" have ever seen. But that is just "my" opinion.

I dug out my G3 Tower logic board and looked at the card. You should not have too much trouble matching the which cable goes to what pin from what I can tell. In fact, before I typed anything else up, I did some searching and found some kind gent put together a site which may help you out with your mod.
dont gut it. this AIO mac can be upgraded to a g4 with a sonnettech card. upgrade the procsesor hardrive and ram instead. a usb 2.0 card would work.. but a fire wire/usb 2.0 card would be most cost effective.. sonttech offers this as well.
you are right, it can be upgraded and I have been considering that as well. To be honest, the Tooth mod is a two-part mod looking well into the future. The ToothPC would funtion as a desktop system for about 8 months before I remove it and implant it into my car as a car-puter. The drawer system on the tooth makes it very easy to itegrate it under the overhang in the trunk. I am also considering a custom acrylic case instead so maybe the tooth will be spares :dry: . I do love the tooth tho, but its primarily the exterior beauty/ugliness that appeals to me. MacOS 9 feels too outdated to use and a G4 upgrade is a bit costly for me.
