You do realize that you need either the 'Original install disc' for that computer or a 'Retail version' install disc for a successful installation?
Install discs from other apple models will not work.

Does the disk look like this:
Or
Like this:

Also to boot directly, you must use a 10.5.x disk or below. Snow leopard and above do not boot.
