That depends greatly on what OS you're running.
OS X 10.5 has Time Machine, but since you're running a G3 iBook, you wouldn't be able to run that OS.

There is no Time Machine with 10.4 so the nearest thing would be to back up using Carbon Copy Cloner or Super Duper.
Either will create bootable backups to an external drive.

Hope this helps.....
