    Yes it would be possible, but performance will be limited if you have little ram or a slower processor. What specs do you have?

    I'm currently rocking the iBook G4 with Tiger and am having no problems. I'd suspect you'd have some performance problems running Leopard. Why do you want to run it vs. Tiger? Tiger works fine for everything I use it for.

    (not trying to be defensive, just curious as to why you want Leopard)

    The missus is running it on a 1Ghz iBook G4 with 1.25Gb RAM.

    Runs fine, if a little slow.

    Same with my girlfriend. She's happy. Her favorite thing is being able to use the snappier Firefox 3

    you can actually put leopard on any g4 no matter what speed if you use LEOPARDASSIST
