Sounds like you've already read this Apple note. No bootable external backup hard drive? You might call Apple support to see if they still have the original OS X disks for your system, or you can buy OS X 10.6 from the online Apple for $20, which would be an upgrade, assuming you have at least 1GB of memory. Otherwise, take it into an Apple store for assistance.

If I call Apple support for the original OS X disks, would they charge me? Because if that's the case then I might as well buy the OS X 10.6 right?

Yes, OS X 10.6 is $20 and the original disks are chargeable and, as I recall, around $45?

Thanks so much! This weekend i'll buy OSX 10.6 :)
