Open the cd drawer amd place the tiger dvd in it. Restart the system and hold down on the "C" key. The OS will startup using the cd/dvd. There is an option to reset the admin password or you can initialize the hd.

I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.

I've not used a slot loading machine, but it would seem to me that you should be able to insert the disc just at restart/startup time, while also holding down on the c key.

Did putting the CD in as he booted it and holding down the C key not work?

Are you sure it's not stolen? The instructions above will work though.
