If you have another Macintosh with a firewire port you can plug them  
into each other with a 6 Pin to 6 Pin FireWire cable. Start up the  
iBook holding down T and a FireWire icon will begin moving on the  
screen. Soon thereafter the iBooks drive will appear in the other   
Macs desktop as a standard FireWire drive that you can install OS X  
onto using the other mac.
