    My sister bought another iMac. Has the push button drive-- not the slot loader. Has OS X installed (haven't checked the exact version yet).

    I was going to use the restore discs to start it fresh, but when I boot to it the disc starts OS 8.6. I don't want to use the restore discs if it's going to install something under OS X.

    push button loading imacs were 1998 - 1999
    slot loading imacs came out late 1999
    OSX was released in 2001
    last "egg" shaped imac was 2001, 2002 they switched to the flat panel (desk lamp) imac...

    you can install OSX on those old school imacs, but i believe you can only go up to 10.3.X
