I dont really understand, but maybe this helps
If you have access to the Windows notebook PC AND this notebook does have 
internet access, then you could enable internet connection sharing on that 
windows 7 notebook and connect via cable (crossed network cable?) from the 
powerbook to the windows 7 notebook.
If Windows 7 doesnt allow this try knoppix (maybe in a virtual machine) 
:) what a workaround

Then you would get an internet connection to the powerbook and use the network 
install cd.
