eBay would be the best place. You can check craigslist and hope for a local cheap one as well.

You can call Apple for replacement install disks.

I don't recall exactly, but I think it's around $25 US.

Depending on the year of release of that PowerBook G4 you will only get Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and earlier.

Yup. No Powerbook shipped with Leopard. It may still be possible to purchase Leopard from Apple, though. It's not listed on their website, but call and ask. It'll be more than the machine specific disk package--About $125USD if I'm not mistaken.

I've got 10.3 thru 10.5 free from Apple. You need to ask politely!

How did you ask?
Where you in an apple store? Were you on the phone with support?

Are you saying that Apple gave you a free "Retail version" of Leopard, or did you actually receive a computer specific Leopard install disc?
