I can help, but I would recommend Tiger (10.4) instead; it's faster, and it'll still run Classic (for running pre-OS X apps).  The only benefit I can think of for 10.5 on PPC is Time Machine, but for a vintage machine, that's not much of a draw considering all the drawbacks.  Leopard was a real stinker on PPC.
