Apple has had a variety of proprietary video connectors over the  
years. They're usually some variation of power + video (ADC "Apple  
Display Connector" was power + VGA &/or DVI depending on flavor), or  
physically smaller connector version of a standard format like DVI or  
VGA, in order to 1) have fewer cables, or 2) save physical space on  
the side of the machine. They usually have a perfectly legitimate  
reason to sell you a $20-30 adapter. :)

My Titanium PowerBook has a DVI out on the back, and I have a DVI-VGA  
adapter for it. If he has an iBook, he might have a different physical  
connector on the side of the machine. It would help to know which  
model Mac he has, and its speed. You can look up which adapter is  
necessary on everymac.com.
