I just bought an old iBook G3 off a friend, which has been wiped clean. Absolutely nothing on this machine.
I inserted my OSX Tiger cd, that I got with my iMac G5, into the iBook and received a message on screen saying:


This software cannot be installed on this computer. "

Can anyone tell me how to get around this, or what OS version that is capable of running on my iBook.
