AFAIK, many Apple G4 machines (especially those more recent) have AGP
graphics. Even the notebooks have AGP graphics.

I see no problems using such a machine as a Desktop, since it has
altivec and this would be a good fit for playing multimedia.

Mirror only the sources directory. You are already getting the binaries
via apt-get/aptitude. This greediness is what drives Marillat's
bandwidth sky-hight. Please, don't do that.

Local security holes are always a concern, unless you are the only user
and are careful.

Yes, installing etch is a good thing. Installing lenny is even better if
you want latter software and learn more about Debian (and also
contribute as a Quality Assurance person for the next release,
especially for a platform deprived of people testing it---all arches
unless i386 and amd64 lack people testing it).
