First, it's completely inappropriate to make this request to a public 
list. . .

Second, this list is focused on BSD Unix, and really only deals with OS 
X land tangentally. . .

if they're scratched, see if Apple will send replacements, but this type 
of request is the WRONG place for this. . .

Or you can try FBSD 6.0 for macppc.
