Welcome to Apple Discussions!
The UK layout has the £ sign where the US has #.
To get the # with your UK layout, type option+3.
To get the £ with a US layout, type option+3.
If you ordered a UK iBook, as opposed to an International iBook, then you rightly got the £ model.
In System Preferences > International > Input Menu,
you can enable any layout that you would wish to use. Enable the input menu in the menubar too, and the keyboard viewer/character palette, a very handy small flag to have in your status bar.
Enjoy your Mac!
In your iBook G4 or in any other Mac with a British Keyboard:
alt (also known as the option key) + 3 = #
Tip: Go to System Preferences / International / Input Menu and check "Keyboard Viewer" and "Show input menu in menu bar". Now you will have the British flag on your menu bar (if that is the keyboard layout that you have chosen). Click on it and select "Show Keyboard Menu". Now as you press the option, control or shift key the Keyboard Viewer will show what those keys do.
Edit: LOL AxL must have beaten me to it for a few seconds. Check the time for both posts.
