Post the panic text here, please. We can usually tell something from the error messages.

Not sure the OP is getting far enough to be able to post the error log.

A few things to try (from easy to more complex):

Unplug everything attached to the iBook
Try booting in safe mode
Try booting in verbose and see if you can determine where it panics
From your install disks run disk utility - cant remember if it has hardware test
Start pulling RAM to see if a bad stick is a culprit.

This is by no means a complete/correct list, but hopefully you can get to point where you can get to the logs so the issue can be isolated.

I posted a pic of the kernel panic above. the message says: You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the restart button.

Unplug everything attached to the iBook Cannot unplug because battery is not charged.
Try booting in safe mode Yes I find myself in safe mode now what?
From your install disks run disk utility - cant remember if it has hardware test cd drive does not work
Start pulling RAM to see if a bad stick is a culprit. tried pulling ram and still got kernel panic

What now guys?

So when you are booting in safe mode are you still getting the kernel panic?

What we are trying to get to is the console logs so you can post something that is more meaningful than the photo above.

If the system is stable in safe mode, then you can reach the panic log at /Library/Logs/panic.log - it will contain the detailed backtrace of the last panic.

If you're not stable in safe mode, boot in verbose mode (command-v during startup), and jot down the text that remains on screen after it panics.

Remove the airport card and try to boot normally.

Wondering if you need a new PRAM battery.

Use an ethernet cable to your router. In the meantime, I'd use a cloth to clean the airport card contacts. Both on the card, and in the notebook. Either the card has gone bad, or it was experiencing erratic connection. A cleaning just might fix things on the cheap.

No. It is a hardware problem.

Have you tried cleaining the contacts, as suggested above?

If that doesn't work, you either buy a new Airport card and hope it was the card and not the socket, or you connect to the internet via Ethernet.
