[rescue] Bondi-ng

We just acquired what, as best I can determine, is a Rev.A Bondi iMac,
with the "maximum" supported 128MB RAM, with OSX 10.0 installed on it,
to which we do not have the administrator password.  I understand a
Rev.A will actually, unofficially, support up to 384MB of RAM, and will
run up to OSX 10.3.9.  (I'm not 100% certain about the Rev.A part.)

Can anyone point us at 10.3.* media or ISOs, or have an old and no
longer used set of 10.3.* (or for that matter, 10.2.*) media lying
around spare?

Also, can anyone recommend a quick intro-to-OS-X just to give us the
basic skinny on where to find what and how to do common tasks that one
would expect to do on a Unix-based OS, but which are, shall we say,
non-trivial on OS X?  (For instance, I understand that on OS X, one
cannot simply 'su -', because root doesn't exist as such.)

        It's not the years, it's the mileage.
