Here's my situation:

I have a powerful macbook, and an empty dvddriveless powerbook.

empty: without any os, formated drive.

What I want to do: I want to install PPC Tiger from my Intel Macbook dvd drive, to my powerbook drive via target disk mode.

I can't install it from my macbook because it's intel, and I can't boot up the install disk.

Other fact: I can't see my macbook drive while connected via firewire, when I boot my powerbook holding option...

All I want is: Boot my powerbook on the Tiger install disk, that is in my macbook drive.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Welcome aboard!
Boot the MacBook in Target mode, you should see the Tiger install disk on the PowerBook over Firewire. Double-click the installer and you should be off to the races.
