    I would just perform a clean install, which is what you should do when selling a Mac anyway.


    -Boot from the install disc holding C while booting until you see the spinning gear.
    -Select language and click continue.
    -Select utilities>disk utility in the menu bar (this takes a few seconds to appear).
    -Select the HD at the top of the list on the left.
    -Click erase tab.
    -Format Mac Os Extended (Journaled).
    -Name Macintosh HD.
    -Click erase.
    -Quit disk utility menu, and continue with installation.

    You will want the original install discs to get top $ for Mac, as well as get more potential buyers.
    Call Apple, and for upto around $20, after giving them your serial number, they will send you out replacement discs.
    While at it, I would also get Snow Leopard ($29) and provide that with the machine when you sell it as well.
