the imac is definitley 10.3.9 but i can't remember what the ibook is exactly.

my best guess would be 10.3.7

Fortunately, you will be able to connect the external HD to either unit.

It helps that both Mac have the Mac OS X Panther edition as their operating systems.

What should happen, when you connect the external HD to your imac, you see a disc on your Desktop representing the external HD connected to the iMac.

From there you should be able to access the files just fine.

I hope this helps. Please reply if I can be of further assistance.
