With such little info, I’ll give you the best information I can. What I’m telling you will be limited in scope, but it should still prove helpful.
-Most PowerBook G4's will run Leopard, but it’s not ideal with less then 2GB of RAM as it’s prone to RAM related performance issues. Tiger is better for RAM strapped systems, but you lose compatibility with applications since most 10.4 versions are significantly older then the 10.5 compatible versions. It’ll run on 1GB, but don’t expect it to run well.
+Most PowerBook G4's will run Leopard, but it’s not ideal with less then 2GB of RAM as it’s prone to RAM related performance issues. Tiger (10.4) is better on RAM limited systems, but you will also have to deal with crappier software compatibility. Yes, 10.5 (Leopard) works but not well.
-For models that are limited to 1GB or less, stick to using Tiger if at all possible. As I mentioned before you do have limited software compatibility but 1GB is way more then Tiger needs to run well as it’s much lighter on system resources. Only run Leopard if you genuinely need it for compatibility.
+For models that are RAM limited (1GB or less), use Tiger for your own sanity. The performance tradeoff is significant and you will be able to tell. Leopard only runs well with 2GB or more, so it only makes sense to deal with the tradeoff if you have 10.5 only software.

-You can run Leopard on most PowerBook G4's, but if you have less then 2GB it may have performance issues. 1GB is okay but it's not the best; you really want a minimum of 2GB of RAM for Leopard.

-For models that are limited to 1GB or less, just run Tiger. Software compatibility will take a hit but it will run very well on 1GB of RAM because it's much lighter then Leopard. For systems that can't take a minimum of 2GB, Tiger is a better option unless you need the software compatibility. On the models that can't take more then 1GB (or support even less), I feel like the compatibility issues are a better tradeoff then the system lag Leopard will cause.

With such little info, the best information I can give you is this.
-You can run Leopard on some of these Powerbooks, but it may not run well unless you have at least 1 or 2GB of RAM. Upgrade the RAM for Leopard. Some aren't supported at all.
-
-If you want to run Tiger, you'll have less software support but it will run better with less RAM. Some machines run like crap on Leopard. Some are more ideal on Tiger due to the CPU being too weak.
-
-Try with Tiger and see if you can bear it first. If you can't try Leopard. If it runs like crap go back to Tiger.

-you can get away with Lepoard but not Snow Lepoard due to no PPC support
-
-If you have tiger laying around, use this if you cannot afford upgrades for it, otherwise leopard may not run well on it
