Do you have the original DVD that came with the iMac G5? I take it you want to format and put it back to original and then install the updates?

If so, put in the OSX DVD that came with your machine (There are 2 of them so be sure Disk #1 is in the drive) and hold down C at or after the Startup Sound and keep it down till you see the Apple with the gray screen.

Once at the install screen, look up top for the utilities drop down. Click on Disk Utility.
You can either use Erase or Partition. Erase the drive and be sure it's Mac OSX Extended (Journalized) format.

If you have any issues, come back and let us know. After that I would do a restart again from the DVD and this time pick the drive you just erased and let it install.
