Your fan running constantly is obviously NOT normal.

Have you checked in either Activity Monitor or Terminal (using top -u
command) to see if a program is running (using a large amount of CPU or
Memory) to cause this heat?

I think Jack had a similar? problem with his processor being hijacked by an
application a while back...

What are you using the iBook for (i.e. Are you streaming iTunes continuously
from a surface similar to carpet or other bad heat circulation situations or
are you only using it for email, surfing and the like on a desk?)
