    No. Neither legally or technically.

    Legally: the OS provided with a Mac is licensed for that Mac only

    Technically: the OS provided with a Mac is locked to that class of Mac, so in this case your OS would only install on another Mac Pro (or maybe PowerMac G5: there has never been a G5 Mac Pro)

    Wouldn't your iMac already have 10.4.11 or have it available in the Software update?
