    Well Sketchbook Express requires OS X.6.6 on an Intel Mac so that is why you have had no joy.

    SketchBook Express on the Mac App Store
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Sketchbook is Intel only. Sorry, it will not work on your G4.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    BTW, get used to seeing that message A LOT, particularly over the next year.

    Bottom line: that iBook G4, awesome as it is, is at least six years old now. It's not going to be able to run an increasing amount of software. Time for an Intel Mac.
