Fellow Mac users,

Boy have a got a question for you guys. I purchased a G3 800MHz iBook w/ 12" TFT Display, Dual-USB and a sort-of translucent keyboard, almost a month ago. This question is not critical, just would be a very cool hack. Why Apple made this iBook with keyboard buttons like it has and did not make them back-lit is beyond me, but I would like to now make it back-lit. Now please put all warranty issues aside when you reply to my message because I have never had a single problem with any of the Apple computers I have had in my lifetime, and I really don't think that this will greatly affect my machine. I want to run anywhere from 5-10 LED's at the front of the keyboard (closest to mouse) and then shoot the beams across the bottom of the keys (underneath the keyboard of course) towards the display. Now looking down through the buttons I can see a white board, which I do not know if it is the base for the board or just the bottom itself. First, please tell me if this is possible. Then second, tell me how I can do it (such as how to tap into the power supply, etc.) If anyone out there has already done this or knows of a useful website that would help me out a lot. Thanks and have a nice day.
