Having some install issues

I am in need of assistance with a fresh OS 10 install. I just bought my G3 Mac from another Ebay user. Problem i am running into is that i can not get the cd's to do anything. I can not install anything in any account. All i get is an action that looks like it's gonna install and it just sits on the desktop and does nothing. Like it started, but then quit. I can't get the thing to boot off the cd by holding down "C". And i can't even get an empty hard drive to take anything. What am i doing wrong, or did i get screwed by someone on ebay?


G3 450mhz
512 meg RAM
ATI Radeon 32 meg
30 gig HD
OS 10.2.6 (currently running)
QUOTE Thanks
