I hope this helps - I'm in the same boat as you - replacing a hard drive on a 12" G4 iBook very soon.

It's fast, cool, quiet, and I was surprised that battery life increased by ~20% over the 20gb OEM Hitachi drive, to ~4 hours.

I always use OWC for upgrades of any kind, done a number of HDs in various Macs. Their prices are competitive and service is out of this world! Why pay $60 for 80Gb when you can pay $68 for 120GB?
You can look up an upgrade, for example HD, by specific Mac model and be sure you're getting the right thing for your Mac.
Here's a link to a page on their site that will let you choose your iBook model and look for upgrades:
