    If you really mean it's running Mac OS version 10.3 (Panther), you're not going to get any updates for it.

    Either buy replacement discs from Apple, or take your chances on eBay.

    $30? Must be an old 300-something Mhz G3? You will be limited to how far you can upgrade OSX depending on the hardware. PPCs, like G3, G4, G5, can only get to 10.5, and if you do have a low-end old iMac you might want keep it where it is OS-wise.
