    I recently got a set of OS X 10.4.2 discs cheap, but will they work on my PowerMac because they are for a powerpc Mac Mini?

    If they are gray discs then they are machine specific.
    You need the black retail versions.

    is there any way to "hack" around the system specificness of the discs?

    You have to find a Mac mini and then update it beyond the minimum requirements for the Power Mac. After that you'd make a disk image and use it to image the Power Mac.
