    Remove the Hard Disk from the iBook and place it in an external hard disk drive enclosure.

    Make sure you buy the right one, depending if the HDD is IDE or SATA.

    Once you do that, hook the external drive to your replacement computer or borrow a friend/family member's computer to get the files you need.
