If you have PC computer and Flash disk (fat32 formated) try to download torrent on pc then move it with flash to mac. Next burn first cd. I don't remember exactly how to burn in 10.1.5 but if you don't burn it right it will not boot. It may be a problem if you don't have cd writer:
1. Open the Disk Copy application (/Applications/Utilities).
2. From the Image menu, choose Burn Image.
3. Select the first image (Mac OS X Install Disc 1.dmg)
4. Click the Burn button.
5. When prompted, insert a blank CD-R disc.
6. Click the Burn button.
Do not use any other program to burn.
After burning restart from CD:
1. Insert CD in computer.
2. Turn computer off.
3. Press power button (turn computer on) and hold down C key on keyboard
If it startup from CD it means that you burn right bootable cd. Then just restart in normal system and burn next 3 cd. After that restart again from first CD and update or Clean install mac os x 10.4.
