I have the Tiger install disks that came with our G5 powermac. Can I install these on my G4? I tried and it'll run the disks, but won't let me install. Is there some magic trick I can do to make it work?

Thanks in advance

No you need to purchase the full retail install DVD, which is black coloured, and not model specific system restore discs wich is what you have.
