    Your ibook probably was set up with both OS9 and OSX but the defaut boot OS was OSX. If the attempted install corrupted the OSX installation your mac may be booting to OS9.

    Try pressing "option" while starting up. If you see on OSX boot partition select that to boot into Panther.

    If its not there and there are no files you need to recover then just do a clean install of Tiger, you can delete the OS9 partion as you configure the install.
