    Which iBook?
    If it is the white iBook G3 (icebook) or iBook G4, the process is fairly difficult - 2 - 4 hours work and meticulous tracking of many dozens of very small parts.

    Search the forums here before posting a question:
    and other threads have covered this.

    The Thinkpad hard drive should work IF it is a 9.5mm tall drive -- some older laptops used 12mm drives and this may not fit.

    Think first how you are going to get your data transferred to the new drive. An external Firewire or USB case is usually the answer. Back up your data FIRST.
