    Default iMac rookie needs help, Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I recently picked up an iMAC from a friend who says it is fine but needs a
    recovery disc because the thing won't boot up correctly.

    I am completely clueless with Macs. Have never had an opportunity to use
    one.

    Computer seems to be all there. Have not unpacked the box yet but it
    contains:

    Monitor/CPU unit
    Keyboard
    Mouse
    Power Cable

    Is that All there is to it?

    Is there a place I can get the files for a recovery disc on line and, more
    importantly, can they be downloaded and burned to a cd on a pc?

    There is no doentation with the machine, so any insight as to what I can
    expect from it in the way of performance would be great.

    The Sticker on the bottom of the unit has the following info:

    INDIGO/4 MHz/10 GB HD/CD/64 MB SDRAM/MDS

    US ENGLISH KYBD/MAC OS

    MODEL # M5521/DHHS CODE SA/EMC # 1857

    Any input or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Mike

    There should be a CD set in the box with the computer. It'll be in a
    little orange backage with an apple log on it. If I remember
    correctly that machine should have 4 "Software Restore" CDs, 2
    "Software Install" CDs and a couple of other bits.
