Can my legacy 15" PowerBook G4 1.5MHz run Mac OS 10.5.8?

I haven't used this laptop in years but I do have a use for it right now however I would like to run something newer than Tiger 10.4.11 which is currently installed. I've got 2G memory and good HD space. It actually runs quite well and surprisingly fast but I have a few applications for which I'd like to install more current versions. This laptop, when purchased new, was configured with a faster HD 7200 rpm, Airport Card, Bluetooth and Max Ram (not much but all that it would take). OR, will installing Leopard really bog the speed down or perhaps speed it up?
