A complete reinstall could be done from retail install disks for 10.5. However - the retail install disks are licensed either for a single machine or the "family pack" licensed for up to 5 machines. It should be marked on the box - maybe the disks too.
It would have to be at least an iBook G4 867 MHz. It won't install on something like an iBook G4 800.
HI Mr. Cooper,

Just make sure you have sufficient disk space. Right or control click the MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop, then click: Get Info. In the Get Info window, click the discovery triangle so it's facing down. You will see; Capacity and Available Make sure you have 10% available disk space, 15% is better. Insufficient available space, can cause performance issues, system corruption, and possible loss of data.
