    No this specific DVD will not work.
    If the photo is correct, then the DVD is gray, which means it is machine specific, and iBooks were out of production when Leopard arrived.

    You need to get the retail DVD of Leopard which costs more than 15USD at this time.

    But 10.4.11 will be a much better experience than 10.5.x, as Tiger doesn't need as much CPU and other resources as Leopard does, and the iBook has not that much of resources to give.
    The minimum system requirements for 10.5 are a G4 PPC CPU with at least 867MHz, and your iBook just has 200MHz more than that.
