I plan on using my powerbook G4 (newly acquired used) for creating animatics and some storyboarding work for my personal projects.

I've had/upgraded LW since version 5 (started on PC). I'm up to version 10 now.

Which version is the most stable for the PowerPC mac?

Thanks!

LW 10 won't work on your G4 (only works on intel macs).
LW 9.0 should work on the G4, not sure about performance though.
I still run 9.6 on a G5 without any issues!

I'm running LW 9.6 on my Powerbook G4, it runs fine course I'm not going to be doing any heavy animation with it but it's cool for modeling and such.

Yep, 9.6 CFM is the latest you can run on your PowerMac. I really loved 9.6 and found it pretty stable for the UB version so I'd give it a shot! 9.6.1 and beyond you won't be able to run on your PowerMac.
