Yep, the more fans the better inside a tower. The BVision gfx chip is
something that would heat up quite a lot. I recommend sticking a fan
directly on that. The PPC CPU shouldn't heat up all that much as it
runs at a low voltage, but an 040 would definitely fry an egg after a
while, so stick a fan on that if it hasn't got one already. A heatsink
really is not enough.

If you have an 060, I would still recommend putting a fan on the CPU
because it will heat up somewhat if air circulation is poor in the
tower or if the tower is full with expansion cards and other hardware.
Hopefully the tower has another big fan designed just for general air
circulation.

Tell me how you go!
