I'm trying to fix an iMac ("iMac G5 ALS (17-inch)") that the missus owns. It powers up and then displays a small folder icon that flashes back and forth between the Finder logo and a question mark. I've done quite a bit of research online and everything seems to lead back to booting the System Install/Restore discs. The problem is, she doesn't have them. According to Apple's Support pages, they are also no longer available:

"This is a vintage product. Service is no longer available from Apple, unless you purchased your product in California. [URL="http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1752"]Read more about vintage and obsolete products[/URL]."

Any suggestion on where I might be able to obtain the appropriate disc(s)?
