I could be wrong, but if I remember correctly, Old Icelandic was a
dialect of [the blanket designation for the northern Germanic group
language] "Old Norse".

links that may be of help:

Old Icelandic grammar:
Old Norse pronunciation:
Old Norse learning materials:
"Norse Course" yahoo group:
Modern Icelandic IPA values & alphabet:

That's all I have off the top of my head.
