When I bought a RAM upgrade for my Key Lime iBook, it was "512 MEG 
PC100 SO DIMM FOR APPLE IBOOK" (from <http://www.18004memory.com/>, 
cost me just over $100 with tax and FedEx 2-day shipping). I don't know 
what the difference is off the top of my head, but you'll almost 
certainly want the PC100 SDRAM. (The new G4 iBooks can use the faster 
module, but none of the previous models can.)

Many vendors will allow you to search for RAM by product, which should 
make this process easier (and more foolproof).
