The question mark means that your iBook can't find a system folder. Most likely a bad hard drive. When you tried the"recovery disk" did you start up holding the "C" key down? What is this Recovery Disk? To check the computer out, you can start it in Target Mode by connecting it to another Mac via firewire cable and start the iBook up holding the "T" key down. You can then try to run disk utilities on it.
