    Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will not work with PowerPC Macs (all Macs before 2006). You need to get your hands on a Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Retail DVD, eBay and Craigslist and other second hand sites can help. Those Retail DVDs will go for 100 USD and more though, and do not buy the grey Restore DVDs, as they are model specific.
