If you are not able to boot off the cd rom then please just goto BIOS setup of your system and simply change Boot order ( or priorities) to cd rom. and then you will be able to boot properly. Don't panic it will get installed smoothly then.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.
With regards,

The pointer jumping on the screen sounds like you may have picked up a virus. While rare, there are mac viruses. I would try to save all my data documents and any other valuable personal files or lists, then do a clean reinstall of the operating system. Then load our documents back in.
You could try to scan for a virus with a mac virus program, but not many are available for a G4 Power PC (PPC) machine.

I need to upgrade my iBook G4 OS X 10.4 to 10.5


You would need a PowerPC G4 867MHz or faster processor and 512MB of RAM in order to do that. You will also need to find a copy of OS X 10.5 from a 3rd party as Apple no longer sells the OS installation disc.

Your hard drive is failing or has some bad sectors.You can get HDD Regenerator software and run it and it most of the time will regenerate the bad sectors causing problems such as yours.If that doesn't work then your hard drive is failing.Also the install disc may be corrupt/scratched causing the error as well.The OS freezing at startup also indicates the hard drive is bad.

Dude, if you have all the current updates for your OS and applications, then you got a logic board issue. Especially if you you keep seeing the spinning beach ball of death or the dreaded white screen of death. 
The iBook G4 is the poster child for logic board defects, because it has to do with the way the circuit boards were flowed.  Apple won't fix this for the iBook G4.  You got to do a big class action lawsuit like they did with the iBook G3 before they will replace the logic board.
Best bet is to sell this thing on e-bay as a non-working unit and get you a better laptop.
