HOLY SH!T, NEVERMIND.

This may sound funny as a solution, but after installing both the 10.2.8 update and the driver update from the CD here (and attempting to install the supposedly-10.3.6+-only driver from AMD's website), I kept restarting my Mac mini G4 and picking my 10.2 Jaguar installation to boot from via pressing and holding Option (AKA Alt) first. The glitchy screen issue persisted UNTIL I rebooted without holding any keys. I thought I was booting back into Mac OS 9.2.2, but installing Jaguar itself seemed to have silently changed my default partition to boot from, and it booted Jaguar instead. Except that my screen, instead of this:

Looked like this:

IN SHORT: Mac mini G4s are compatible with Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar. Holy sh!t. The late 2005 models were supposed to be 10.4 and 10.5 only, but nope, if updated enough, they all can also natively boot 10.3 Panther and 10.2 Jaguar, and even Mac OS 9 (with a modified Mac OS ROM file).

Sadly, although the Mac mini G4 comes with an ATI 9200 GPU and Mac OS X 10.2.8 can be surprisingly installed onto it unofficially, there's a graphics issue that this driver update does not address. Sad

Newer versions can also be found in AMD's website. Lists only 10.3 and 10.4, despite mentioning 10.2.8 for ATI Displays. However, when I tried using that version of ATI Displays, the program just crashed, contrary to the version found here in the Garden, which is a bit older.
