iPhoto 5.0 on G3

How to install iPhoto package from iLife ’05 DVD to my daughters iBook G3 Clamshell?

Apple iBook G3 Clamshell 466SEIt’s so difficult with main iLife installer on G3 machine what told me a failure message. The solution is very simle, but we need a G4 or better computer. We can install directly on another computer as the part of iLife (Custom Install), or boot Clamshell in firewire target mode to use as an external disk.

iPhoto 5.0 (with updates) works on G3/466 with 320MB of RAM and ultra-slow internal 9GB HDD, but not like the lightning – maybe iPhoto 2.0.1 would be better…
