Clean install

#1
Is there any way to reset my installation of OSX without using the CDs? My Superdrive is broken, but I'm selling my iBook on, and need to do a clean install on the drive.

Thanks!

I may actually be insane.

You need some bootable medium to access Disk Utility, which would enable you to wipe the drive, then again, some bootable medium to re-install the OS.

If you have another mac, you can restore the disc image to that mac, then install the OS to the iBook from that image. Though I think partitioning would be involved (Unless you have an iPod you can use as a temp external HDD).
