ibook os x problems

I recently purchased an Apple iBook G4 with 1.2GHz 256MB 30GB. It came without an operating system installed. A friend gave me his copy of Leopard. It is the gray disk & the dvd. When I try to install it reads the disk then ask me what language I want. Then it says preparing to install & does nothing else. I've waited hours for it do something but just stays like that. Any help would be appreciated.

G'day and welcome to the forums.
Apart from being illegal and a form of piracy, you cannot install from the system install disc from another computer. If you want Leopard, go to auction sites etc and look for a black coloured full retail install DVD, set you back around the $100. Do not buy the silver/grey disc you told us about in your thread.Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
