I bought Mac OSX Leopard for my MacBook a couple of years ago and had no intention of using it on the iMac. I'm guessing somewhere along the way, he has tried to install it and failed - wiping the hard drive completely.
Unless the Leopard OS X disk you bought for your MacBook is a retail version it will not work to install Leopard on the G5. Do you still have your original install media set (probably Tiger) that you can try?

And as Harry said, the optical drive may be faulty adding to your problem.
