So my powerbook is getting all weird and I want to do a clean install... the only thing is... my tiger disk has gone missing and I can't find it anywhere. However, I have an install disk for my imac (which is currently getting repaired) which has tiger on it... is their anyway for me to trick the install disk into installing it on my Powerbook?

boot the powerbook in target disk mode, hook it to the imac, and run the installer on the imac
