It _ought_ to work if you sort out the bootloader.

oldworld topped out at 366MHz anyway right?  (the 333 and 366 Beige G3
were only sold from 1998-08-12 ->  1999-01-01 too)  That's pretty much
the minimum you'd need to run Fedora anyway these days...  Not sure it's
really worth it, you'll need at least 256MB of RAM anyway, and those
things used 168-pin 3.3V DIMMs which are pretty hard to find these days.

Stock might have topped out around there, but there were assorted aftermarket upgrades one could purchase. I had a Beige G3 tower running at 533MHz with 768MB of RAM at one point in time, iirc.
