Something is wrong with your OSX install disks I would think. Normally it is a simply a matter of inserting the OSX boot disk and following the instructions on the screen,

You can get install disks for OSX on ebay for a pretty decent price, this is where I got mine. If you have all the disks you should have 9 cds. Mine were all original disks in original package and include all original papers etc. I got these for a iMac but they will also work with the iBook without problems, I do have a iBook that I just bought but it already had OSX installed (along with 9.2).
