Nop, ppc isn't supported but it's based on NetBSD bootfloppy/CD-ROM.

*but* you can clone a PPC drive, you must just use an i386 machine to do the cloning. (ie, take the drive out of the powerbook, hook it up into an intel/amd based machine, and clone it)

Since you're talking a laptop, it does sound like a pain. Possibly booting a live CD, like knoppix, and then using dd to make a backup would work. (That's all g4u does anyway, except that it compresses and ftps the dd image.)
