That is NOT true; I have a 750 PATA (IDE/ATA) drive in my G4; ordered it
through Amazon.uk about 2 years ago.
It seems hard to obtain PATA drives nowadays; this is sad as I have about
5 perfectly serviceable Pentium 4s lying around that, with decent size
(i.e. not the 20 GB ones they currently have) could be 'thrown' at quite
of my pupils for the cost of a PATA drive (80-160 GB) and Mint XFCE; for
they would be very happy.

I'd be hard-put to squeeze anything else inside my G4; although a second fan
(err??? possibly connected to an internal USB port) might not be a bad
