No those disks are machine specific. You need to find tiger or panther install disks. You might be better off with panther 10.3 on that machine depending on the memory installed on the machine. It has to be the disk with the big X on them not the gray disks unless they are the ones specifically for that exact machine.

as long as you have a firewire port and 256 MB, you'll be fine to install Tiger. but if those cds are restore discs, fryman22 is correct
