    You have to use the discs specific to your machine to reinstall OSX. You won't be able to use the ones from the MBP.

    A boxed copy of OSX won't work because they're all PPC-only at the moment.

    Ring Apple, tell them you've lost the discs and they'll send you a new set - might take a while though. Unless you can find someone with Core Duo iMac restore discs it's your only option though.
