Restart and hold down the 'c' key. Follow the instructions

edit: Optionally, you can select your Tiger install disks from the start up disk menu in the System Preferences, or open the CD while on your desktop and double click the 'Install Mac OS X' application.

Thanks! I'm coming back to Apple world soon enough I hope. All these debts have to be paid first. I plan on getting a used ibook within the next month and keeping it till right before the powerbook Macintels are released next year.
