It should be a 933 QS overclocked, given the L2/3 cache. It also could be an non-apple cpu upgrade.

If IT IS a MDD should be the last educational model of 2003 at 1.0 instead of 1.25

Is that motherboard (133 bus) with the CPU of a http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powermac_g4/specs/powermac_g4_1.25_mdd.html
Ask for a photo of the back to see if the motherboard is FW800
The last 2003 MDD EDU has that cpu and was OS9 bootable (no FW800)

Sorry for my error. DDR memory means MDD
It could be the last model CPU http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powermac_g4/specs/powermac_g4_1.25_mdd.html on a 133 board.
The MDD 867 board is 133 so it could be a OS9 board.
http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powermac_g4/specs/powermac_g4_1.0_mdd.html is 133 bus but FW800 and only 1 Mb L2/3

I am sorry for answering too much quickly
It seem 98% the FW800 1Ghz, but it could be a modified FW400 166bus with the cpu from that model (2% prob)

Is there out a method to "change" the "firmware" of a MDD FW800 to a OS9 bootable (First MDD) "bios"?
I did not find anyone that had made, but maybe one user has the 2 models and can say us: "the fw800 has a XXX chip for the bios and the Fw400 has YYY chip"  Maybe noone was brave enought to "desolder" the "OSX" controller and put a "OS9" compatible one.
There "should" be a method to "force flash" the bios  from the FW800 models to OS9, but in 6-7 years of research I did not find anything nor anyone.
But I just learned in the good way that this machines can still surprise us.
