    I got two sets of discs with my new refurb imac and was wondering if
    is it possible to run the installer disc from a new imac 2.66 (os 10.5) to update the os on a 2.33 iMac (white running os 10.4) without causing many problems or losing data?

    that way I wouldn't have to buy 10.5 (again so to speak) to update the old imac??? I have extra discs so I guess I have a extra license? i'm not sure.

    No. Each Mac ships with a System Restore disc. The purpose of this disc is to restore the specific model to its out-of-the-box state. It is not designed as a general OS release. Your System Restore disc will work only with your specific model. It will not work with any other model.
