Exclamation exchange screen iBook G4 with hp pavillion???

hi everybody!
prefacing that I'm not so expert with pc (and also with English...)
I need a technical information!
I want to change the monitor of an iBook G4 -14,1"- (liquid crystal display is broken) with the monitor of my hp pavillion dv5000z -15,4"- (motherboard is broken so the pc doesn't work), I don't care if it will come out such a "monster" (I suppose screen will be bigger than the rest of mac!), my question is if it is possible to do that.
are there difference between the screen of mac and the screen of my hp?
I think another thing I could do is to substitute only the liquid crystal display..but where can I buy it without spending a lot of money?
thank you all!

Just give up with this idea. It sounds like a very complicated DIY.

+1 Just give up on this idea before it becomes a botch job and you ruin the ibook.

Just go on ebay and and seach for a 14" ibook display you can find them cheap.
