I recently purchased a mac mini from a friend. I did not get the OS disks with it. It is currently running Tiger. I want to blow out his user info and apps and make me the owner of the computer.

Can you tell me how to do this? As I said, I don't have the install disks. Do I need them?

You need the disks.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

You'll need the disks to fully do what you're asking.

Otherwise, you can create a new account, log into that, and set it so the computer auto-logs onto that one when you start up.

You'll still have all his programs, but things like iCal, Safari Bookmarks, and Address book will be empty.
