  I don't think you need the BSD base system to run Adobe Indesign

  But, if you do then you have to do it this way:

1) backup all your data files from your iBook.  Unplug your ethernet
connection so
you have no network connection.

2) insert disk #1 of the Panther OS and boot with the C key to boot off
the CD

3) When the option comes up asking if you want to install OSX, select the
to completely erase the existing disk and reinitialize it.

4) Install Panther.

5) Before plugging in the ethernet cable, boot from the hard disk of the
insert disk #1, and go to the additional installers and run the BSD
system installer.

6) Plug in ethernet cable and run Software Update.
