I didn't mean to send that; my finger slipped :-) I thinking about saying
that you definitely don't need to worry about the IMS TwinTurbo. That was
a PCI video card that they used in high-end PowerMacs a couple of years
ago (I have one in one of my PowerComputing clones.) Your powerbook
almost certainly has some flavor of ATI card, but I'm not an expert and I
don't know if there have been different cards in different g3 powerbooks.
Current powerbooks have ATI Rage Pro LT cards, which I think is a flavor
of Mach 64. But, other people know this stuff much better than I do and I
was going to let them respond to you.
