You can theoretically run 10.

You can theoretically run 10.3 using XPostFacto, but I wouldn't recommend it. Wallstreets have enough problems running 10.2, and be prepared for more if you install Panther.

In my opinion, Wallstreets are OS 9 machines.

I ran 10.2 on my Wallstreet for quite a while and I had no Problems (only hardware Problems, but not caused by 10.2)

what processor and how much m

what processor and how much memory do you have?
with a 233mhz and 256 mb ram 10.2 ran VERY slow on my wallstreet
its a great machine for 9
also if you have a wavelan card, os 9 will recognize it as an airport card, with os x you need 3rd party drivers

OS X 1.2

Mac OS X Server 1.x should run fine on the Wallstreet's. Although finding a legit copy is tough.

Nah.

Do everyone a favour and don't be sticking OS X on any old Wallstreet.

OS 9 is a great OS(as long as you don't go back further than 9.2.2). Its still current, and it's blazing fast.

OS X kills Macs. We all know it. Let the poor old dear live to see the new year.

On the contrary

I've got 10.3 installed on 2 Wallstreets (300MHz, 512MB RAM on one and 320MB on the other, 1MB cache @ 200MHz), and it runs just fine, especially in 16-bit colour and after the modified 10.2.6 RagePro kext is installed. No kernel panics at all, just some backlight issues before I replaced the PRAM battery. The only "problem" is the lack of floppy support.
