Every Mac should have come with a Software Restore (or similarly titled DVD, or set of CDs [on older Macs]). If GB came installed on your machine, than the Restore disc should have it.
If you can't find it, yes, I'm afraid you'll need to buy iLife (04, 05 [probably used], or 06 [the current revision])

Yes, Disc 2 only contained OS 9.2, etc. However, the prompt I got when I attempted to open Garage Band was:
Instrument Library is invalid!
The instrument library is invalid. GarageBand expects a valid instrument Library folder in/Library/Application Support/GarageBand.
Please choose a valid instrument Library folder or quit and reinstall GarageBand.
And a previous post prompted me to look at the backup I made before my hard drive got wiped clean, specifically:
/Library/Application Support/Garage Band/Instrument Library.
I determined that the Garage Band folder was missing from my reinstall of Tiger, and dragged it's contents from the external hd into my G5. It appeared that a copy was successfully made(a lot of files got transferred), but when I clicked on the Loop Browser, I got the prompt that there were no loops present, and the buttons were all grey. Why can't I access these Apple loops? Any idea? Your help would be appreciated.
