I need to see the inside photo schematics of the airport connector and the 3 small cables that connect to the motherboard, the airport card, and who-knows-what-else. I need to plug them all back in after installing an airport extreme card. Any ideas?

Is this a liquid cooled G5? What CPU is it? Need as much info as possible like what where you doing last time it turned on? Have you looked inside the case? Do you hear any clicking when the power cable is connected for the first time? A lot of the last G5's were liquid cooled and a lot have leaked in the past. This small leak eventually ruins the power supply and worse yet ruins the logicboard and CPUs. If you don't know if it is liquid cooled look for a warning stamp on the bottom near front by the CPU fans (inside the case). It states to shut off if liquid is viable (something to that effect). Most times the liquid cannot be seen as it drips into the power supply on the very bottom. I would take it to Apple and have them check it out.
there are actually extra spaces for internal drives with the proper connectors for the ribbon cable and the power cable. Just open the side of the G5, and double check your connectors prior to purchase to be sure you get the proper type. You can connect it to the available connectors on the existing ribbon and power cable... Then boot it up and simply do a disk utilities mount and format of your drive and you're good to go.
Several steps to try.
1) Make sure your iMac Airport card is powered on. You can do that with the Airport icon in your menu bar (looks like a pie wedge), or go to System Preferences / Networking / Airport and make sure Airport is on (also, enable "Show Airport Status in Menu Bar" to get the handy icon).
2) Temporarily move your iMac as close as possible to the Airport Express. Pull down the Airport icon and see if the name of your network shows up. If it doesn't, you have a bad Airport card in your iMac. Otherwise...
3) Move your iMac back to where it was. See if the Airport icon still shows your network's name. If not, you may have a bad Airport antenna in your iMac, or you may simply have too many intervening walls or be at too far a distance.
The iMac G5 and iMac G5 (Ambient Light Sensor) computers have a video out port located on the back of the computer, which will mirror video. Video mirroring means you can see the same image that is on the iMac G5's flat-panel display on an external monitor, television, or projector. Using the video out port, you can mirror video with a compatible VGA display using the Apple VGA Display Adapter. You can also use the video mirroring feature with a television or projector that has S-video or composite video connectors when you use the Apple Video Adapter. Both the Apple VGA Display Adapter (M8639G/A) and the Apple Video Adapter (M9109G/A) are available separately, and are needed if you want to use your iMac with a VGA monitor cable, S-video cable, or composite video cable. The video mirroring feature is "plug and play". Simply connect a VGA display, television, or projector to the appropriate adapter (see above), then connect the adapter to the video out port located on the back of the computer. When you connect the adapter to the computer, the screen may refresh momentarily as the computer prepares itself for the new video output. The computer tries to match the resolution of the built-in and external display. If there is no match, the computer changes both screen resolutions and may black out areas on the built-in display in order to match the capabilities of the external display. Important: To ensure that your iMac G5 automatically detects the external display or projector, be sure you plug the adapter into the external display or projector before you plug it into the iMac G5. You can switch resolutions and frequencies for both the iMac G5 flat-panel display and the external display, television, or projector using Displays preferences. Want to watch a DVD movie disc on a television that's connected to your iMac G5? Select a 720 x 480 NTSC (in the United States) or 720 x 576 PAL (in Europe and other regions) resolution in Displays preferences. Tip: Because of the display limitations of most televisions, the images displayed on a television screen are usually not as high quality as those on the built-in display or an external monitor.
I would be very cautious doing this, if you are not an Apple tech. You can damage the connector for the G5 Processors, and render the machine un-usable.
You have to remove the RAM and Processor, then remove the two power connectors that connect from the power supply to the logic board. On the bottom, underside of the chassis, there are four screws. Remove them, then you can tilt the power supply out of the bottom of the unit.
The connector you have on the back of the video card is called and ADC connector, Dr. Bott used to make adatpers from ADC to DVI and ADC to VGA, but has since stopped making them, you should be able to those special adapters on ebay.
