Everything except the Airport Extreme (if you have one) is supported perfectly.

hi,

I got an iBook G4, got some problems with portage and need to reinstall to get back to a nice and clean box but .. some questions :
- what about the "sleep" function : close the ibook -> sleep, open the ibook -> wakeup ?
- what about the 3D accel ?

The Radeon 9200 in the new iBook G4's have 3d Accell support. The "sleep" function and all other laptop functionality can be controlled by pbbuttons

emerge pbbuttons


search around for more info on setting up your radeon card its a pretty standard proccess and there are hundreds of howto's and posts.
