I'm not sure what model of the Mac Pro is since I can't look at "about this mac"... is there any other way to see what it is without being in OSX? Also, my work has 5 mac pros, all of which are different model numbers, so finding the info on this specific one would be a challenge in itself...
That is a pretty old install DVD. The OLDEST Mac Pro (the "quad-core" model that came out in 2006)...shipped with Mac OS 10.4.7. So even on the "oldest" Mac Pro...and OS 10.4.3 install disk would be too old. Thus on any newer Mac Pro it wouldn't work with either.
To make a long story short...you need a newer Mac OS install disk. Either OS 10.5 or OS 10.6. I would suggest OS 10.6...but you would need to confirm application compatibility (with the apps. you use) before installing a newer OS. If you knew the OS version from the old hard drive...that would of course be the most helpful.
