    nope, i made this mistake a few years ago. i had an original bondiblue imac and i wanted to put jaguar on it. i bought some imac install cds, they were ones for the lamp looking imac. they would boot up, but thats about it.

    Target boot the laptop you want to install it on (startup+T) and plug that into the laptop the discs work on using a firewire cable.

    Run the installer and pick the target laptop. Once it's done, unplug and enjoy. It's how I got Tiger and Leopard on my 800mhz G4 iBook. By hooking it up to my G5.
