    Buy a new laptop. There is no way to upgrade any PPC based Mac, including any PowerBook, to an Intel CPU.

    iLife 09 works with PPC computers:

    http://www.apple.com/ilife/systemrequirements.html

    So...

    - If you don't have Leopard, you would have to buy it.
    - If you are trying to install iLife 09 off someone else's system install / restore discs (that probably don't have a PPC binary for it on them), then you have to go and actually buy iLife 09.
    - If you don't meet the other requirements for iLife, you have to get a better computer. ;)
