If you want to put a system on it and boot, you need to reformat - Disk Utility - Partition - Options... and change to GUID.
Even if you don't need to boot, you probably want to anyway.
What you don't want to do is use Migration Assistant to bring over PPC applications (just data, prefs and such).
Throw in RAM (in sets of four) and speed away!
