How to successfully install Mac OS X 10.3 on Beige G3s

First of all, here are the specs of my machine:

Beige G3
Sonnet 400 MHz G4 upgrade w/ 1 MB L2 cache
768 MB RAM
40 GB IDE drive
4 GB 10,00RPM Cheetah SCSI drive
Apple UltraSCSI card
Radeon 7000
USB/Firewire PCI card
Toshiba DVD drive
Built-in Zip drive
Rev. A ROM

These instructions are based upon this machine. If you have any problems on a differently-abled Beige G3, please let me know so we can work towards a more complete Howto. This may or may not work with other Mac models. It should, but there may be other idiosyncrasies I don't know about. Keep in mind 10.3 will only work on G3 and above processors, so older machines will *not* work unless they have a G3 or G4 upgrade installed. Also, XPostFacto a17 has some preliminary support for the built-in video of Beige G3s, but I haven't tested it as of yet. I am doing all video on the Radeon 7000 for now, as I had problems with the built-in video on earlier versions of XPF. It may work, it may not. I'll probably test this soon so that I can get back my dual monitor setup. On to the install.

Learning to Count in Binary

We've all seen the stereotypical movie computer person. They watch a screen of binary scroll by, apparently interpeting it and making so much sense of it they only have to glance up every few seconds to figure out whats going on. Not gonna happen.

When Corruption Kills - Backing Up Your Data

[i]I recently had the pleasure of typesetting sixteen pages. These pages contained names, I.D. numbers, owners names/addresses, as well as several other pieces of data about dogs. After two days of deciphering non-standardized forms to find the information, I came to work expecting to fix any mistakes that had come up in the proof reading and opened the file.
