does this ibook have firewire ports? in order to boot from an external cd rom or drive, it has to be firewire, USB is too slow, so it won't boot. the cd drive trying to eject is not a good sign, sounds like a possible hardware issue. do you have the apple hardware test disc that came with the ibook? if you do, try to get a hold of a firewire external drive, most likely a dvd rom or dvd-r drive, maybe borrow one from a friend if possible.
BTW, what OS is installed currently?
