Fix iBook G3 Logic Board

Well, my G3 iBook's logic board has died (it was in that series that had the logic board problem). I had it replaced once already when it was under warrenty. However, the second one has died and Apple will not touch it (unless I pay something like $350 for Apple to fix it).

Well, I decided to take matters into my own hands and I ripped open my iBook piece by piece. Now that I have the logic board in front of me, what can I do to fix it? Can I sodder something? Should I take it out and buy a new one off ebay? Thanks for any help?

(by the way, on the logic board, there was this wierd yellow foam. I scrapped it all off to see what I was dealing with, but does anyone know if it was important? THanks!!
