Hi guys,
another new mac convert with a question about getting a mac up and running properly here.

as obviosly im just in from the darkside of the PC world i have a little issue. i have an old IMac from work that when they decided to upgrade to some very sexy new imac's! to ensure the data is safe they completly wiped the hard drives.

now im as i mentioned a pc person so i asked out IT guy about how i can get it up and running and he said i needed an old operating system as the ones he currently has are to new and will not run on it.

so... im in need of im guessing a boot disk? with and operating system but inorder to do this im guessing i have to open the disk drive? i dont know how to do that with out the operating system, like i said from the old school PC worldwhere there was a button for that kinda thing LOL...

so can anyone help the nood? plz
