    After some searching, I see that calling Apple and ordering a replacement set of disks was the thing to do. However when I called, they said all they had was a "Tiger Retail" DVD for this iMac for $16. Not sure if that's going to work, because my goal is to get OS 9/Classic mode running on Tiger, and I've been told the only way to get OS 9 on Tiger is to have the original install/recovery disks to "restore" that piece.

    Can't find these specific disks on ebay - yet. Does anyone have some disks lying around, or another suggestion?

    Found it

    Since Apple didn't have the disks any longer, I got it from Powerbook Medic for $20.

    Just what I needed, and OS 9/classic is working perfectly!
