would the install disk that came with a macbook work with a mac pro/ power mac?
I don't think so. I know the intel mac install disks are intel only so it definately won't work with pre intel macs.
No, for the simple reason, that those grey Restore DVDs are model specific, thus no DVD for a MacBook 4,1 works with a MacBook 4,2 or even any other Mac.
would a retail disk work? - are they architecture specific?
A retail disk should work, except the one for Mac OS X 10.4, as that never came with a Universal binary.
Do you have a Mac Pro (Intel Mac since late 2006) or Power Mac G4/5?
call Apple Support. They will send you the right disk.
doubt that, bought the machine second hand, and its from 2004.
i.e. Power Mac. Any retail Tiger or Leopard disc should work. Snow Leopard will not (Intel only).
Call Apple anyway. You never know what they will say until you try.
They will give you replacement disks nonetheless, for a fee of 30 USD of course.
for that price i'd rather get leopard server off some auction site, they are out there
