How do I wipe my iBook g3 clean?

i took my ibook g3 to geek squad because i couldnt use wireless or ethernet. when i got the computer my friend was trying to update it because it only has windows 5 on it.they told me at geek squad that he probably was updating it wrong and that i would need the actual disk and would have 2 wipe it clean first.they wanted 199 plus a disk 2 do this,im not to familiar with computers as far as this field but im not a dummy and im pretty sure i could do this myself.

This machine would not run Windows so I don't think your friend knew what he was talking about.

You are probably running system 9.2.2 on this machine if it's even a Mac. Put your system installation disk in and boot holding down the "C" key. Go to Utilities and reformat the disk, then install the system. Look on the back of the Book and get the "Axxx" number and we can help you more and tell you what and where to get the correct software. If you do not have system software you can go here to get it for $30, get the retail 9.2.2: http://fastmac.com/osclassic.php
