If I'm understanding your question correctly, you just hold down the power button.
yh that turns it off, goes off and everything, and then i turn it back on, starts up does that apple "da-dahh" sound and blue screen comes back up, is there no way i can reboot the whole computer, and install osx on it again???

When you put in the install disk, press "C" or "alt/option" while the computer is booting up. Does it not even let you choose where to boot from?

Yup. If you hit "C" it should automatically choose the CD/DVD drive, if you press "alt/option" it lets you select between the available devices.
