New to the forum - so hello!
Anyway, my Ibook screen has just cracked and although, in the long run, i will have to replace it, i'm trying to get the info off my computer as i need it for work.
Can you plug in an external screen to the Ibook? If so, what do i need to do? My thinking was to display it on an external monitor, and then burn the relevant files i need onto CD.
I would welcome any help or feedback...

I presume i need to change my settings in my preferences? Or does it just automatically kick in?
Can i do this with any monitor?

It should automatically kick in (at least a projector I once used did...)
Alternatively you could boot your iBook in firewire target mode and use a 2nd firewire equipped mac to copy your files that way.
But the 2nd monitor idea should work fine...
