    The original grey install/restore discs are model specific, discs for a PowerBook will not work in your iBook.

    You can try to get replacement grey install/restore discs from Apple, call them, and ask, giving them your model and serial number. I am unsure as to how much Apple will charge you for them though.

    You indicated that you have a PowerPC 750fx v2.3 (G3) Processor, so the latest OS you can run is Mac OS X 10.4.11, and a quick check shows that Amazon amazingly still has retail copies of Tiger in stock:

    Amazon.com: Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger [OLD VERSION]: Software
