iBook and DVI input monitor - Mac Portable

I have a iBook G3/800 12" white model. I also have a 17" LCD monitor - it has DVI input. It also has a VGA input but this is in use for another PC. Does anyone know of a cable or adapter that would allow me use the monitor as an external display for the iBook, using the DVI?...

    Default iBook and DVI input monitor

    I have a iBook G3/800 12" white model. I also have a 17" LCD monitor - it
    has DVI input. It also has a VGA input but this is in use for another PC.
    Does anyone know of a cable or adapter that would allow me use the monitor
    as an external display for the iBook, using the DVI?

    if all you have is vga output, there is no digital workflow to lose.

    Not kidding about the price. Probably cheaper to put DVI compatible video
    card in the PC and use the iBook on the VGA.
