theoretically can i use my system restore disc for computer A to install OS 10.4 onto computer B (which is running OS 10.3)-- if i boot computer B in target firewire mode, and then direct computer A to install the OSX instead of onto itself, onto computer B instead?

Theoretically, no.

Get a legitimate retail copy of the OS. And you'll be looking for a black retail disc. The gray discs that proliferate on ebay will not work as they are system specific, as is yours.
