    You'll need a set of replacement discs (contact Apple, I've heard they run around $40) or you'll need to purchase Leopard, the latest version of OS X (assuming your Mac supports Leopard).

    Once you've got the discs in hand, you can use a cheap, external DVD drive to do the install.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    If your machine is a PowerPC, (PPC) you will have to look for a Firewire optical drive in order for it to be bootable as PPC do not boot, generally, from USB, even USB2.

    Good luck and keep us posted?
