Not sure why you are having this much trouble with your iMac, but a re-install of the OS "should" have cleared everything up if the problem was software related.
When you boot from the Snow Leopard disc, does everything look correct? Colors, Highlighting, etc.
I realize that you will not have a great deal to go on but there should be enough for you to tell if it is even starting to look correct.
I wonder if you could go into a little more detail regarding this DVD Direct thing. Is it software or hardware?
Google searches turn up both so please explain what this is.
Just for fits, grins and giggles, let's try Zapping the PRAM before you try booting from the OS X installation disk.
Shut down the machine and locate the Command + Option + P + R keys. With the machine off, try holding down all four of them at once. Keep them down.
Once you have that mastered, start the iMac and at the FIRST chime, hold down the Command + Option + P + R keys and keep them down until you hear the THIRD Chime.
Release and allow the machine to boot.
Make any difference?
