I've come across G4 laptops above 1gig where someone has installed Leopard and they are absolute dogs. If you do install Tiger on the G3, try and shove as much RAM in it as possible as RAM will give both of them a big boost and it is not hard to do - the slot is under a removable panel under the keyboard.

I don't know what the OP has but it isn't an 800 MHz G4 iBook. There ain't no such critter. The slowest G4 iBook was 933 MHz.  Even if it was you could still install Leopard with a simple patch.  I ran my 1.33 MHz G4 iBook on Leopard and it was just fine.
