I should have mentioned before, you can access the open firmware prompt by holding that first key combination above after the startup chime (apologies if that was obvious to you - you never know).

This can also probably also be easily resolved if you install Panther on an external FireWire hard drive and boot from that. Put Carbon Copy Cloner (the version for Panther) on the firewire drive and use it to clone to the HD in the eMac.

You bought a good computer for your son - we'll get it running.

edit: use the iMac G3 to install panther on the FireWire drive, if that's what you want to do. It sounds like you have an iMac G5 that requires Tiger/Leopard.
