  I think it's the same as the pre-Intel Macs. With the DVD in the drive, restart the MacBook while holding down the "Option" key, IIRC.

  You should get a choice of starting from the DVD or the MacBook HD. Select the DVD, then continue with the installation of OS X onto the iBook HD (in target disk mode).
