If it was bought 4 years ago it probably came with Mac OS X 10.1 or 10.2 pre-installed.
It's an iMac - PowerPC G3 - 350mHz - running OS 18.104.22.168, with a CD-ROM drive only. Not sure on the ram - had to find this info by remote control. The machine may in fact be older than 4 yrs....
It can take up to 1GB, then. It'll be a model using the second style of case, I think, so it'll take two PC100 DIMMs in the slots accessible by lifting the panel on the underside at the rear. Older iMacs were far harder to upgrade as you had to remove the whole logic board.
As for the release of Tiger, it probably won't be for at least a month or two. There is an Apple event scheduled to take place in just over a two of weeks at which they're going to launch some new products. Leopard could appear here along with new releases of iLife and iWork, or it could be used to announce new hardware. For certain iTunes 7.1 is due anytime, as the Apple TV box needs it, and this will most likely be included with iLife.
