Default Wipe Out Harddrive on Mac, Install Windows?

I have an old iBook G4, is there any way I can wipe out my harddrive and just install Windows on it?

It can't be dual booted because it doesn't have an Intel processor.

Thanks.

As far as I know, it can't be done. Windows doesn't run on the power PC platform. You'll need an intel mac to do something like that. You can run linux on a G4 however.

imposible, if you truly did want to, you would have to change the processor into an INTEL one
