Windows - no.
Ubuntu - possibly. You need the PPC version and you should read the documentation first. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCDown...

But the best OS would be OS X, so what problems are you having with the install? (I take it you have checked that 10.4 runs on your model.)

Edit - I've checked and 10.4 should run on any G4 iBook - so what goes wrong?

The problem is that OS X version 10.4 that I've got with my ibook won't work and I can find another installation that works...Do you know how and where can I find it?

Can you expand on this statement; explain a little more clearly what you mean here?
