Operating system has been wiped
 
I've somehow managed to erase OS X 10.2.8 (don't ask) which was running on my Power Mac G4. What can I do? I've got discs for Cheetah, Tiger and Leopard; I know the first two will work on the computer. The CD drive won't open so I can't insert the CDs to reinstall an OS - any suggestions?

Hold down the mouse button on bootup, it should spit the tray out to load a disc, slide the disc in, close the tray and restart it by holding the power button for four seconds to shut it off, then turn it back on holding the C key to boot from the CD
