Do I need the ibook OS X cd to install OS X on a ibook laptop or can I use any Mac OS X 10.2 or higher cd to install OSX?

I have an ibook G4 running OS X 10.3.  I want to wipe it clean, but I do not have the OSX disk for it. (purchased from ebay).  Can I use any Mac OS X cd to perform this install?

Your help will be greatly appreciated

Yes.  you should be fine installing from any installation cd.  As far as the system restore cd's go, thats a different story.  But if the installation cd boots, you should be fine.
You dont want to install 10.2 though. It's just old. If you use 10.3 then you can apply all the updates to 10.3.5.
