Bad optical drive?

Try taking an image of the 10.6 Server DVD and restoring it to a USB or Firewire drive.

Yeah, I agree that that looks like a bad optical drive. I have seen 10.6 Server installed on a variety of 20" iMacs at my college (They like the look of em I think, although they really should have an XServe IMHO), so it definitely can be made to work.
