I need more help than that.  You want to use the G5 as a file server?  Or other serving?  What are the workstations, what will they be doing with the server?

thanks d,
ok, yeah, I need to have the G5 run as a server where by workstations can run off it completely-boot up and all. They will be working on a intranet system-browser based mostly.

You want to do NetBoot, yes? http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/netboot.html
Youre going to need OS X Server though.

To run OS X, you should have at least 256MB of RAM.
Here are the minimum system requirements for OS X from Apple:
