Trying to reinstall OS

Hello everybody (again).

I previously posted about a fault with my g4 not turning on, which has now been sorted. But now I'm faced with another problem!

I bought it from eBay, faulty and the fault has been sorted. But now I don't have the login password and I'm having trouble reinstalling the OS. I have all of the original discs but when I insert the install disc and hold C nothing happens, it just loads up to the login screen. I'm using a Windows keyboard but that's never been a problem in the past. My guess is a faulty CD drive but before replacing that I was wondering if anybody has any tips for me? Maybe a way of creating a usb drive that I can install the OS from? Or another idea is to install the OS on an external drive and clone it to the internal drive, but I'd need directions on how to do this. I have plenty of iMacs and Macbooks lying around if that helps?!

I'd love for an answer to my problem as its in brand new condition and has every piece of original packaging, etc..

Thanks in advance

It's a wired keyboard which is responsive in the login screen so I don't think that's the problem. I'm fairly sure I tried holding alt, but I'll give it another go tomorrow. Even if no CD is detected will holding alt load anything up? Or will it just boot as normal? Thanks for your help

Is it a wireless keyboard? My iMac will not go to the boot selection screen with a wireless keyboard. I have to plug in a wired one. Try to press and hold alt to get to the boot menu and then select the cd.
