    Get the Snow Leopard DVD for 29USD and use that to re-install Mac OS X. But iLife is not included in that. You can also get replacement DVDs for your Mac from Apple for 15-30USD if you contact them.

    No, but you can do that with the Disk utility that is on the installation DVDs if you want.
