    If I reformat my MBP, can I reintall Front Row from the installation disks?

    The installation DVDs that I got with my MBP had everything on them. I reinstalled OS X straight away to remove all the printer drivers, etc. to save a bit of space.

    It did re-install everything and all the iLife '06 stuff is on the OS X installation DVD.

    FrontRow is not really an app in the normal sense but part of the OS (a lot of it's functionality is provided by BezelServices). If you installed OSX on a MBP from the MBP restore disks FrontRow should be installed. If you used a different combination of machines/disks you are probably out of luck.
