You need to insert your DVD and then restart the computer while holding down the C key to get it to boot from the DVD. You can then use Disk Utility to erase the drive and reinstall Tiger. There's an erase nad install option. When erasing you might want to select the write zeros option for extra security, but it will slow down the erase.
I am assuming it came with these Tiger discs. Make sure the new owner gets the disks as they will only really work on that computer. It's also a legal requirement if you are selling the computer with an operating system installed. If it came with another operating system then you might want to install that instead if you want to keep the Tiger disks, but the new owner should realize it is coming with an older OS.
Since you are selling the iMac, go here for information for a Secure Erase:
Also, if you purchased music using iTunes on the iMac, launch iTunes. From the Menu Bar, click Store/Deauthorize Computer.
