    This may be one for an Apple shop since you don't have the CDs

    You can use your own panther CD's to do a clean install of Panther but you will lose all of your files

    put the cd in
    restart the computer
    hold down C as soon as the computer starts booting
    when you get to select a drive click install options and do a clean install
