I've got an ibook G4 (sept 2005). It everything works fine for me (i haven't tested the internal modem, but it seems there is a driver, but it's not free), the only problem I found is getting synaptics driver to work when awaking my ibook from sleeping mode.

TS, do you mean to install Gentoo/OSX or Gentoo/Linux on your iBook?

Gentoo is the normal one
You won't be able to install closed-source things that are x86 only such as:
-running things on top of wine or
-win32 video codecs
-proprietary games such as uneral tournament
-ndiswrapper(but the closed source hal of madwifi is avaliable for ppc and there are open-source alternatives)
-proprietary nvidia and Ati drivers(but you have 3d support with the new open-source ones for ati)
BUT you can run osX under linux
that is called MOL (mac on linux)

gentoo on OS/X
http://packages.gentoo.org/archs/ppc-macos/
Gentoo on OSX let you install some gentoo packages,in fact there is an architecture called ppc-macos,without touching to your macOS installation
it's gentoo on top of macOS and not gentoo darwin
