    You can't just pop in any random CD. To reinstall OS X, you need the original disc, or a disc that's made for iBook G4. I believe the iBook G4, when released, already was in the panther era (anyone correct me here).. so you need at least OS 10.3 - which will be on that original disc.

    BTW, punctuation marks are your friend.

    By buying this from this guy:

    1- you just encouraged theft

    2- if the school reports the laptop as stolen, you won't be able to take it anywhere to get it fixed as it will be on a list

    3- never buy a Mac without its install disks.
