how to either clean or reinstall imacs to sell

Our charity has been given two imac5s but they need to be cleaned down or reinstalled to sell them. I don't have install disks, what can I do?. I am an iMac novice

By 'cleaned down' I assume you mean the removal of any data files and other personal information on the hard drives?

That's a pretty easy job, and you shouldn't need to reinstall anything. Just ask if you need further help with data file removal. The donor should really have done the job before giving you the machines - are you sure this isn't the case?
