10.4.11 is the highest system this iMac will take and it will run classic. You don't lose classic capability till 10.5. I would upgrade the RAM to the maximum of 1 GB. Here's how to get into the machine: iMac G4 17 800 MHz EMC 1936 Battery Replacement

If I remember correctly you can "run Classic" in order to use applications (but networking and some audio (MIDI) can no longer access the OS X ports) and some machines would not boot to it if you have 10.4x since you have a non-intel machine you might still be able to boot into classic.
