no

check manufacturer sites for apple software for your printer and webcam.

OS 10.2 is jaguar, if I can remember correctly.

Some good news and some bad.

Yes you can run XP.

But it would need virtual PC, an emulator to run it. Unfortunately the emulator is costly and slow.

You can buy Virtual PC with XP Pro for £190. I have this running very well on a G5 with Tiger (OS x 10.4.1)click here
