I recently was given an iMac G3 (original tray loading CD-ROM drive). The original owner took the original harddrive out, and didnt have the original restore disks.

Now when it turns on it I get a grey screen with a folder icon in the center and a blinking question mark, I assume it's looking for the OS files.

Would it load off the disk automatically or is there a series of keys I'd have to press to start it loading? Sorry, this is the first Mac anything I've owned, little lone tried to restore.
