    You should be able to install directly from the Snow Leopard install disc. You don't need the other discs.

    Power on, put the snow leopard install disk in.

    If you aren't fast enough then power it back off, and then power on.

    Hold Option before the Apple shows up.

    Then choose the install disk when it shows up on screen. Wait for it to boot up to the installer.

    Once it's there, choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu in the menubar and format the new drive.

    Then go back to the installer and just go through the prompts.
