Apple sells a usb-to-ethernet adapter, but the reports I've seen say it only works with Intel Macs running 10.5.2 or higher. (See the comments here: )

Not sure if it'll run on a Power PC like your Powerbook, unfortunately.

UPDATE: Actually, it looks like folks have been using the adapter with PPCs, but there may be issues with the 10.5.6 upgrade. Check out this thread for more:
