First things first: Buy an install DVD for your MacBook Pro. You'll need at least the version that was preinstalled on your MBP. Either a retail version or one specific for your machine.

The only version of OS X that can be downloaded is Lion 10.7.X and you must be using Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in order to do that. All other versions of OS X must be purchased on DVD either direct from Apple or other legal vendors.
