I have an older -- 2005ish -- G4 ibook. I would like to pass it on to my young niece, but it is in need of a complete reformatting of the hard drive. While the hard drive is 30 GB, after manually deleting all but the essential programs, it only allows me to store on about 3.5 GB of hard drive. It also is too slow. Is there any way to completely restart without the boot disk? I lost it somewhere along the way.
