Need to do an Erase and Install on a MacBook running OS X 10.5.8 in order restore it to the original factory settings however it won't read the original discs. Is it possible to do this using the discs that came with my iMac also running OS X 10.5.8? BTW the MacBook reads CDs and DVDs okay so as far as I can tell there are no issues with the optical drive.

I couldn't say for sure but my guess would be that the iMac discs would work OK...

You could also take it into an Apple store if you have the time, might be be able to get them to do the install for you.

Is it not worth getting Snow Leopard?

Thanks, checked at the Apple store and it should be fine. Don't want to buy Snow Leopard as I'm selling the MacBook, hence the Erase and Install.
