I assume (based on the computer information attached) that your imac is less than one year old? Silver color? If so, you need to find out what connection this other monitor has. Could be one of two - VGA or DVI. If you have a cable for this other monitor already bring it with you to the store if possible (not ordering of the internet). Your imac can produce a variety of resolutions so I would not be concerned about that especially with a 17" monitor.
Could be two possible connectors - mini dvi to vga (probably based on the info you provided) http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9320G/A
Or mini dvi to dvi http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9321G/B
Also wondering about the difference in size of the screens from 24 inch iMac and 17 inch IBM monitor and how this will work when moving items from one monitor to the other.
I can't answer this one for you - don't have too much experience with this. But I can tell you this, it won't look as good as your 24".
