Thanks for the answers, let me clarify

I should have said that I don't see the iBook "disk burn" software 
prompt...like I am used to in Toast. I was thinking that maybe you 
have to install a disk burn program to use the CDRW. And I only had 
the old Toast program to use. I was expecting the window prompt to be 
labeled "disk burn utility", "iBurn" or something. The generic window 
seemed like a OS prompt that is confused about what the CD is for and 
do I know what I want to do with it. Which is about what it says but 
it doesn't give me any indication that burning photos is an option.

>You are saying you have an external CD burner that works on Toast 
>under OS9 on your desktop and you want to use the burner on your 
>iBook, which presumably hasn't got a CD writer.

my "about this mac" says I have a Sony CDRWDVD fully supported and I 
believe it. I just have never used it. This iBook is new to me and I 
am just now getting around to doing iPhoto things.

>You should be able to download and install Patchburn

Thanks for the link...

the only arrow i see is the one that indicates rotating the photo

additonal icons??? like what???  my iPhoto version is 1.1.1
I was looking for a picture screen to show what my windows look like 
and saw iLife (...cool does that run on 10.3?)

>This will only burn an iPhoto album(s) which is fine if you want to 
>install in iPhoto but no good to send to someone else with a PC.

I really need PC communication

the explanations below are still assuming I don't have CD burner on 
the iBook? Or if I am using my iBook's CDRW?

My problem is that I didn't recognize the window prompt as from a 
burner...it wasn't labeled. So i am going to

>It sounds a lot of steps but I'm sure you'll follow it when you do it.

thank you for taking the time to explain all that. I will keep those 
instruction in mind or at least in a file folder...which is more 
reliable for recall.

I am sure the answer is upgrade...and more memory...$$$$$.
