  • Certainly will if the G5 runs OS X Leopard.

    System Requirement for backup using Time Machine: Mac computer with Mac OS X v10.5.7 or later (Snow Leopard or later will not install).

    For automatic backup and time machine functionality, it will. I have G5 20" first generation (PowerPC), and it's working well. Automatic backup over wireless works well. It's recommended to do your first backup of G5 via wired connection.
