You have a couple of problems
1. 9.2.1 can only be installed on a computer that has 9.1 installed.

2. you should have thew original disks that you got with the iBook.

the copy of 9 that came with the iBook is the one you need to install 
after reinitializing the hard drive.  If it is 9.1 then install 
9.2.1.  after that is done you can install any version of from OS X.1 
to OS X.3.4.

This comes from experience.

If you don't have the original disks see if you can find some who 
will let you copy their OS 9.2.1 or .2.2 to your hard drive. and then 
install the version of OS X as above.
