The first of what I'm sure will be lots of questions... Did you find that a Micro-ATX motherboard was the only way to go? (eg - full ATX is too big for these cases)
You can get an ATX board to fit but the approach would be different as you would have to remove the back of the case and mount the board on the inside instead of on the door. I may do just that for my next G4 conversion

Post away once you get it up, I have an ATX board that I want to jam into my other G4 case.

I am having some problems with gaps between the plastic door panel and the "handles". I was wondering if you had any experience with this.
Also how did you get the disk drive to work?
The gaps between the polymer panes is a result of the case slowly succumbing to the effects of gravity and changing shape a little. I have found that switching the feet from front to rear aleviates this a little as the weight distribution is opposite that way. As for the DVD drive I went with the easiest option for Macbane; and external USB model.
