I don't know if it will fit in your iBook. But you can look at this diagram,

Just by looking at it,i really don't think so, take a look at the door of that drive, i guess you willl have to modify your iBook's case. Even though i'm really new w/ Macs i can tell you that the main problem with optical drives and "stillish notebooks" is the door of the tray.
