You could theoretically run OS X.4 on it if you can find a cd installer for it. If not, anything below this will run. I have os x.2 on mine, and am using it as a jukebox. Works well, but audio quality is not the best. It still owns an iPod though lol.

You gotta buy it. I suggest eBay.

and nothing newer than OS X.4. OS X.5 needed G4, and OS X.6 needs intel.

Yes it's tiger. You will need to find a CD version, because I doubt your iMac has a DVD drive.

You sure? I have the SE imac g3 (aka the last model they ever made) and it is only cd-rom. Test it with a dvd movie if you havent already.
