How to get Safari

I am trying to get Safari on my computer. Right now OS10.0 is on my computer, which does not have Safari. So I am thinking of buying OS10.4 by internet auction. But also, to save money, I am thinking of buying 10.2 or 10.3. According to Wikipedia, 10.2 has Safari, or at least Safari can be installed on 10.2. So I'm just wondering, if I buy 10.2, is Safari included, or can it be downloaded? Or do I need 10.3 or 10.4?
By the way, according to the specs of 10.5, I need at least a G4 processor, and mine is G3. That is why I'm not even considering 10.5.

Correct, Leopard (10.5) requires at least G4 hardware. I have a few G3's running Tiger (10.4) with no issues, so that's what I would recommend. Tiger will come bundled with Safari.
