Installing Tiger on iMac G3, need DVD drive?

I have a copy of Tiger which comes on CDs, not DVDs. I got it specifically because my G3 iMac does not have a DVD drive. When I insert the first disk it opens the contents and I decided to read the "Read Before You Install" document. In the document, it lists a DVD drive as a requirement for installation. I am a bit confused since I don't see why I would need a DVD drive to install the OS from a CD. Should I not bother trying to install it or what?

Its probably packaging from the DVDs. If you have the Tiger CDs, you should have no problem.Blog and Photo Gallery: http://philolin.me/

Stick it in the drive, and hold down C when rebooting. Then you'll be able to see if it works or not.
