    What kind of Snow Leopard DVD do you have? In order to install Snow Leopard on your 2008 MacBook, you must have the retail version of Snow Leopard; either the upgrade (if you're currently using Leopard) or the full install boxed version. A Snow Leopard DVD from another Mac (shipped with the machine) will not work for your 2008 MacBook.
