My daughter eMac G4 is running OS X verison 10.3. She is unable to get to Disney due to needing Adobe Flash. When installing it, I keep getting an error messaging saying there was an error found and unable to install. Does anyone have any idea how to over come this.
It seems that more and more programs are cutting support for Panther (OS X 10.3). I would try to download Firefox and see if the website works. Firefox 3 isn't compatible with Panther, so you need to get Firefox 2 at:

I called the product's support services, and was instructed on how to unlock, and boot up my eMac G4 1.0, OS X version without a startup disk. There are also several safe, and legal sites online that can assist you, with your current issue, hotspot wifi installing plus many other questions, and needs. Hope this info has been helpful in any way, and thank's for asking !
The eMac uses a G4 processor, and is limited to Mac OS 10.5.x. The most recent version of Flash Player that will run on it is Flash Player 10.1 (if you are running OS 10.4 or later), or Flash Player 9.0.280 if you are still running OS 10.3. Note that not all web content will work these older versions - in particular, Facebook video inserts will incorrectly claim you don't even have Flash installed instead of playing!
according to adobes System Requirements on Flash 10, PPC is not supported
(incase link didn't work http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/systemreqs/ )
It does support 10.4.11, however only on Intel based machines.
Depending on the software, it might be completely necessary, then again it might not be. Perhaps finding a different broadcasting platform might be your best solution.
You should format the internal hard disk and install a clean and fresh version of Mac-OS anyways and create a new user-account. If there is no install-disc included, try calling Apple, tell them your eMac's serial number (All eMac's have their serial numbers printed inside the disc drive door), and ask them if they have any replacement install discs for your model of eMac. Check out the Apple eMac support page or the Apple eMac support forum for more informations.
OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.
Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.
You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.
Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.
With software and computers changing constantly-I use older software for older macs. You will continuously run into problems dealing with new software and old computers. See if you can find older versions that still run great rather than the creative suite. Stick with earlier system software as well. Now days 640 for memory is not much because of the increase in software space use. You can also allocate memory to certain software you use most.
