You have Tiger.

First, reboot and stick the disk in there, and hold down the 'C' key before the chime as you start up. I'd be surprised if ANY Mac OS X installation DVD doesn't work. I've had an old MacBook and put a previous version on there. You're starting fresh, ignoring what's on the hard disk. This saves paying for Snow. I hope the disk is not damaged.

As it loads, before installing, if you really want to erase the hard disk, use Utilities --> Disk Utility first, and scrub the disk, choosing HFS+ (journaled) unless you have a preference.

If I was you, I'd just use the system you have already. No need to fix, if it's not broken. You can remove any junk you don't like.
