How do I access the contents of an HDD from an iMac G5 (PPC) without the original computer?

My iMac G5 started to freeze on start up so I went to reinstall Leopard which seemed to solve the problem, so I started to back up the HDD and the spinning pinwheel problems began to reappear.
I reinserted the Leopard disk, noticed the archive and install button, attempted the process only to end up freezing up halfway through. The disk is unbootable but hopefully still readable.
The issues are, I don't think, with the HDD itself so I would like to access its contents-- but I imagine that's difficult without a spare Mac to access that HFS format?
What are my cheapest and best options?
