    My dvd drive is busted, so I'm attempting to use remote disc to install snow leopard on my macbook pro (running 10.5.5).

    There doesn't seem to be a clean install option without running the snow leopard disc from boot. Is there any way that I can run the install disc from boot via remote disc so I can run a clean install?
    I tried restarting my computer and holding down the alt/option key, which showed the only available boot drive as my macbook pro's internal hard drive.

    any help is greatly appreciated

    I've never used remote disc before, but you can use Disk Utility to create an image of the install disc onto a USB thumb drive or external drive, and boot off of that and install. I usually keep bootable images of my install discs in case of this same scenario.
