    connecting the two via ethernet would be the optimum way.

    you navigate to your-user-name>pictures and copy the iphoto library folder to the other computer.

    - target disk mode (easiest & fastest)
    - IP over Firewire (fast)
    - Ethernet (slower because the ibook still has 100Mb)
    - WiFi (slowest)
    - external backup to USB HDD/ stick or CD/ DVD device

    Right, forgot about that. In that case leaves you with all the non-firewire options.
