Jonathon - Can you get your self to one of the Apple Stores? If you can bring in your system and the CD/DVD's you have to the genius bar with a sad face they should be able to install the OS on your system from there store copies of OS's they have. Once you have a working system make sure you make a few backups on CD and/or ext HD as you'll hate your self having to go through this again.

If they can't help you you'll need to find an old retail copy of Tiger (10.4) or Leopard (10.5) as your system is a PowerPC not Intel based CPU. Snow Leopard (10.6) and newer only support Intel based systems.
