I am buying an iBook G4 and would like to install Fedora Core 7 on it. Should I be following any directions other than the standard installation procedure listed here:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f7/en_US/

Also, if I ever want to install Mac OS back again, can I just boot the Mac OS install disc and reformat?

The install is almost the same as x86, except in ppc architecture there in no grub, ppc use yaboot and works slightly different. Yes, you can install macosx again without problems, only you must delete existing partition.

May be you want to use both os (macosx and linux) in the same machine, in that case is better to use macosx to partition disk, then install macosx and then install Fedora.
