you dont have to, disable services you dont need after installation such as SSH Daemon and etc. it's gonna be fine with your current specs

ill look into this tho, i need something to do with that machine. Though, i hoped to make it a macromedia box, but that reguires OS 9.1 or higher plus more power, which costs money. Damn 9% tuition increases(back to back years with 9%).

You don't need Mac OS with Yellow Dog. I installed it on an old Blue and White G3 a few weeks ago just fine.
