Sounds like my house.

I have:

*Dual G4 tower
*original iMac
*2nd gen (Sapphire?) iMac (this one actually works)
*G4 Cube
*G4 iMac (well, two actually, but I'm parts-harvesting to make one 
fully-functional FrankenBook).

The Cube's slot-loading drive has been replaced twice to no avail, so I'l 
be prowling for some sort of solution.  Sapphire iMac is used for email 
and playing the online game Escape Velocity by the kiddies, who will also 
get the FrankenBook when it's done.  I want the old original iMac for HC 
and a Mac OS 9-only graphics program and I'm not certain what to do with 
the old tower.  Oh, and I have a PM 7100 too ;-)  No idea whether that one 
even boots.
