    Contact Apple. If you give them your machine's serial number, they should be able to send you the proper restore discs for your machine for a nominal fee.

    Officially, without the paperwork and discs, you don't hold a valid license to use the software. But nobody's going to come knocking on your door asking to see your papers. ;)

    Apple will cough it up if you call them, but you may have to press them. Been there with an eMac back in the day.
