Your unit came with Panther (10.3). You can get a copy of the original Grey disk from Apple for about $15. If you want Tiger you need to buy a Retail copy (Black) to do the install. Apple has not had a downloadable OS since OS-9. You could probably find a illegal copy online but most people find problems with such downloads including trojans and other malware.

nothing legitimate that I'm aware of.

Regarding the version, any OSX 10.4 will work on any Powerbook G4 except for the Powerbook G4 (Dual Layer SD) which requires 10.4.2. Accoding to your post stating model A1010 or A1104, you will have no problem wiht any 10.4 disc, as long as it's not a disc form another mac (the gray discs).

You will need either a retail version of 10.4 or a upgrade 10.4 if you have 10.3. You can also use machine specific (gray disks) made specifically for your machine (beware of the gray disks made for other machines with the exception of the gray eMac disks which install on all the machines. FastMac carries all these disks: http://fastmac.com/osx.php
