Hi I want to install Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar on my 300mhz B&W G3. When I try to click the install button, it prepares for installation but few minutes later, I get the error message The installer quit due to an unexpected error (code 0) Please restart your computer. I am installing Mac OS X on a Empty partition on my hard drive. I tried to zap the PRAM No luck. My firmwares up to date
Here are the specs of the computer

That Mac should run OS X up to 10.4. Is the disk a retail one, or is it marked for a specific model. OS X disks are notorious for only installing on the model they were supplied with if you don't use a retail disk.
If you are using a retail disk then it sounds like a hardware error - memory or disk would be the prime candidates.
Multiple posts are, unfortunately, very common in the OS X forum. There seem to be serious configuration problems with this forum.
