  Start the MacBook from the OS X DVD while the iBook is in Target Disk mode. When you start the installation from the DVD (or CD) this way, the target disk (iBook) should show as a destination disk.

  If you are seeing the OS X install disk on the desktop, then you may have started from the MacBook HD.

    Ok..i am stuck.
    I have the ibook with Target disk..
    I have the os x 10.4 disk installed in macbook (this disk is not the macbook os x 10.4 version)
    the target disk shows up on my macbook desktop
    the install disk shows up on desktop
    when i open it /click on it.. the only message that comes up is Mac OS x 10.4 cannot be installon on this machine.
    I am not sure which machine it is referring to... 
    How do i get it to know it is to install on the ibook?

    I don't get to the select a destination...
