Were can I download Mac OS X 10.4?

So I have a Mac Xserve Raid and was wondering were can I get a copy of OS X 10.4 that is from Apple. I have a Mac Pro with the Fibre channel card in it with the cord. I just need the OS because the Hard drive was reformatted. I am well aware that the OS has stopped being supported But I need a safe copy that hasn't been tampered with. Any help would be great!

Thank You!

I have a listing of used and refurbished Mac shops which may hold older copies*:

Also note for Intel Macs, you can only use the 10.4 installer disc prebundled with them when they were sold. For PowerPC Macs, 10.4 was the first Mac OS X to ship on DVD, with a hard to find CD Media Exchange Program. Firewire DVD drives had mixed compatibility with the 10.4 installer discs, and not all 10.4 compatible Macs shipped with DVD drive. http://www.macsales.com/ still sells compatible ones. And some PowerPC Macs shipped new with 10.4.3 or earlier, and need the 10.4.6 Retail installer if you bought the 10.4 installer disc. To find out which ones did, see this tip:

This was significant because Mac OS X's Classic mode for Mac OS 9 would not work on those Macs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
