I'm moving from my iBook G3 700 to and iBook G4 1GHz. My current iBook has 128MB of built in RAM and 512 of add-on in the form of

Size: 512 MB
Speed: PC133U-333

Is this RAM compatible with the new new G4 iBooks?

Thanks to anyone who can tell me.

Unfortunately, no.
The new iBooks use 200 pin DDR SODIMM ram, like the new Powerbooks (they can use DDR266/PC2100 or higher--most resellers will use one or the other of these terms, but they add up to the same thing).
The old PC133 stuff (144 pin) won't work.
