All three are very simple. Here's a link to the iBook instruction manual, which explains the installation of the AirPort card and RAM:

Upgrading to Panther will just be a matter of putting in the disks running the installer.

My wife and I just bought a Tangerine iBook. It had been upgraded to 366mHz w/ a cd burner and started life with 64Mb. I put in an airport card and upgraded the ram to 320Mb's. I also installed Panther in modified form.
(less the alternate language sections). I ended up with just over a gig of HD space leftover. She mostly uses it for surfing, iTunes,and iChat. It seems to do this with ease. We paid just over $300 U.S. shipped. Hope this helps.

BTW, the ram and airport installation is very easy. It can be accessed under the keyboard.

If you are planning on installing an AirPort card, just remember to get the original AirPort card. Clamshells cannot take the AirPort Extreme. I have known of a few people who have made that mistake and were left with a wireless card they could not use.
