    We have an iBook, G4, with 1.2 GHz PPC and 1.25 GB RAM. It is still using Jaguar, running 10.3.9.

    We can upgrade this to Leopard, right?

    And, should it be a clean install or upgrade?

    Thanks.

    You can upgrade, I recommend a clean install :)

    More RAM would certainly be good...

    Thanks guys. Our iBook has 256 MB RAM built in, and I added 1 GB.

    Can I add more? I thought I had to leave that 256 of Built in RAM in there. I would love to take it out and add more. Possible?

    I think the 256 is fixed, you're stuck with a maximum 1.25gb I'm afraid.

    leopard should run fine on you iBook, since you have more than the minimum system requirements.

    10.3.9 is Panther .... Jaguar is 10.2.x :)

    i have always done an erase and install... never gone the update route
