I have an Intel MacBook Pro with OSX 10.4.11 however the DVD drive does not  work. I want to upgrade this computer to 10.5 so I can backup to Time Capsule. I also have a MacBook with 10.6.8 that I'm hoping to be able to use as a source drive for updating the MacBook Pro (say, in target disc mode). What are my options for the 10.4 to 10.5 upgrade?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

    Insert the Mac OS X install DVD into the MacBook, connect the computers with a FireWire cable if possible, start the MacBook up with the T key held down, and perform the installation. If you don't have a retail Mac OS X 10.5 DVD lying around, phone the online Apple Store and order a Mac OS X 10.6 DVD.

    That isn't a retail DVD. See above.
