    How is your OS X 0.4.11 partition formatted?

    Are the Leopard discs a retail version or from another Mac?
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia ...

    That is because you cannot use the install discs from another mac - you need to go and buy a retail copy

    Basically, your disks will not work because they only work with the MacBook you just bought, they are workarounds but they are a bit tricky to get to.

    Its worth a shot though.
