Which computer is in Target Mode, and which is booting the install DVD?
To install, you must boot from the computer which will get the Installation (installer selects driver/extensions based on model it is running on). Since your DVD drive is broken, the "other" computer has to have the DVD in it, and it must be in Target mode.

How to use and troubleshoot FireWire target disk mode

BTW, I've never tried this - I don't know if the DVD drive will be visible in Target Mode... (supposed to, but...)
Maybe it will be easier to get a cheap external DVD drive?
