Use your System install disks. If you want to keep your settings go with archive and install

Put your original system installation disks into the DVD drive on your mac. When you boot into OSX, you will be prompted to do something (if you aren't just double click on the disk when it shows up on your desktop.) Tell it you would like to to a clean install and it will wipe your hard drive and when everything is over, you will have a brand new(like) computer.

Here is the apple support tutorial about how to do this: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8177.html

Good Luck
