Unlike more modern Macs, the 2006/2007 models came with an installation CD/DVD so your best bet is to find a friend with a copy of OSX 10.4 Tiger, OSX 10.5, Leopard or OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard which is the latest system these models will run.

Reinstall OS X Snow Leopard from the OS X Snow Leopard install disc. If you don't have one, you'll have to find someone who does and get them to lend it to you.

Google how to make a ...

Yes, if there is no make uninstall, make install can help finding installed files.

I saw that the installation size for those packages when calling up apt-get was a few MBs so I bit the bullet and let apt-get do its thing.

If it shows up as a few hundred MBs, ...

If you have a single hard-disk with an extra Ubuntu installation, just boot from the one you want to keep, install gparted (sudo apt-get gparted). In gparted remove the unwanted partition and decide what to do with the empty space. Then, BEFORE REBOOTING type sudo apt-get install /dev/sda assuming /dev/sda is your hard disk. Reboot and you're done.

Yes. You can remove the PPA after you are done installing. However, you will no longer receive updates to software. PPAs are "software repositories". You get software from them. The software doesn't need it. Think of your program as a bottle of milk. The PPA is the store. When you buy the milk, the milk (nor you) no longer needs the store. You can (if you ...

There really is no need to wipe the hard drive. Either keep running the installed OS or simply install another, choosing to wipe the drive during installation. That said, as someone who has tried about a dozen distros, Ubuntu will be a lot easier to set up and use for a beginner.

If you're just looking to wipe the entire hard drive, you can just run: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=4M Assuming that sda is is the hard drive you want to wipe. That being said, be careful!

Normally if you want a new operating system you just put in the install cd (or in your case you can add a iso file).

Ubuntu does not work like Windows In Windows, a program comes with pretty much all the files it needs. In Ubuntu, a program uses a lot of common files. These are called dependencies.
