If you have a retail 10.4 installation disk it should readily work with any Powerbook G4. What will not work is an installation disk that came with a new Mac that is not identical to yours. Each model has different hardware components and therefore different drivers.

In the end I installed 10.4 over the top of everything. Clean Computer. Hey want to buy it?
Presumably you zero erased the HD before installing 10.4? If not it won't be 'clean'.
