I don't think you can. But you may be able to use VLC...

I'm guessing your 17" powerbook is probably equipped with a UJ815 DVD combo drive. In any case, check 'About This Mac' from the Apple menu and click on more info. This will give you the specific drive model. After you've got that head over to The Firmware Page for firmware:
The Firmware Page

Once you have the exact info on your drive -- its only a matter of getting the appropriate firmware to make it Region Free.

I don't think there is a region free firmware for that drive. I used to have one in my notebook but eventually sold it because, frankly, it sucks.
