your going to need to find a copy of tiger. stick the disc in the computer, and install. its pretty easy.

There is not a way i know of the update for free, legally, without the disc or a disc image.

after i did that the mac wont load it gets stuck after the home screen now the disk is stuck in there now : (
This is probably too late for you, anyhow, if you hold down the eject button while the mac is powering up the disc will eject - just keep your finger down until it does. You may have problems with the optical drive if it doesn't read the disk. Also when you hold down the option key you should be able to select the drive to boot the imac, I hope this helps if it's not too late!
