Why? You already have the second dvd with the leopard update on it that came with the MBP. Just use that one.

The DVD's that came with the macs are machine specific.... so if you try, you will be unsuccessful, and end up with kernel panics, besides, as pre mentioned, if your macbook came with leopard (which is 2 discs by the way), why would you need to install with the leopard discs that came with the mini?

Am I missing something here?
