You need a Mini-VGA to VGA adapter (http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=mini+vga+apple+-s+-display*+-dvi+-analog&_sacat=0&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_odkw=mini+vga+apple+-s+-displayport+-dvi&_osacat=0&bkBtn=1). I think I have one if you want it, it's the OEM Apple one.

Also be sure to try out Screen Spanning Doctor (http://screen-spanning-doctor.en.softonic.com/mac) as the iBook only outputs a mirrored image of the screen's display when using the adapter. Enabling the option with the above utility will allow you to have 2 independent screens both with their own resolutions.
