Can anyone help me configure nt3.51 server to install on a Mac power pc. I can take off the Mac OS if that's what has to be done. What ever it takes. NT3.51 was the last version that would run on power pc.

I dont think you can install NT 3.51 on a Mac PowerPC computer, even it has a heart called PowerPC.

As for NT compatible PowerPC computers, you may refer a M$ released document called HCL (hardware compatible list). Here is some uni-processor PowerPC computers compatible with NT:
