"Ten", but no one is confused if you say "ex".

I suspect it's older than you think -- an iMac G3 from the late 90s or
so. The iMac G4 and even the late iMac G3 all shipped with more RAM than
that. The latest it could be is something like a G3/450mhz iMac DV --
Now, that said, if it's running OS9, it ought to be able to at least run
a web browser, either Internet Explorer 5.x or Netscape 4.x. They're old
and crusty, but they ought to be able to view JPGs.
If that won't work, let me know and I can try some other ideas...
