    I bought..

    a powerbook g4 from a car boot sale a while ago.. The fella was unsure if it was working or not as there was no charger supplied and had been laying in his loft for a while..

    So ive now bought a charger and it works fine!!.. but i wanna delete all the stuff thats on it and start afresh ie reinstall the OS. but how do i know what OS it is and where do i get it from? I didnt get any cd's with it.

    go to control pannel. 'system' if in windows it will tell you home or pro, then you need to find out the product key

    click apple icon on top left and choose "about this mac.." it'll tell you os version there.
