There is your problem. You can NOT boot a G4/G5 Mac with a Macbook DVD. One is for Intel the other for Power PC. Can you find your media? If not get a hold of Apple. I am pretty sure from what happened at the Apple Store if you find your Media all will work. Just be sure once in the installer to run the Disc Utility and partition/Erase the new drive.
