I doubt there are any repositories left for 5.05 so you will not be able to get any software to help you get things working. You might consider reinstalling with 8.04. You might have some issues but I believe folks in the forum can help you solve them.

Looks like the resolution is off. I have never had a G3 but I bet there are some folks here that can help you through getting it right. I have seen a lot of people install on G3 successfully.
