You have apparently a Wallstreet Powerbook. And yes, it cannot go beyond 10.2.8 without hacking the installation using XPostFacto. For this particular model I do not recommend doing this, since there was (and probably still is) a problem with the video chip (ATI Rage LT Pro if I remember correctly) under Panther.
Anyway, for memory there is this place
where you can buy it really cheap now.
As for Jaguar (10.2), I think the retail package was in CD's. Just do a search on ebay and you will find it.
Mac OS X is heavy for such an old machine. Even Jaguar is going to slow it down considerably, compared to the Mac OS 8 experience. However, the system stability, much better multitasking and the unix foundations of 10.2 may make it worth to consider upgrading.
