1. I wouldn't recommend resizing it.
2. With the Install Disc in the MBP, MBP in Target Mode, boot the Mini holding alt key to choose the Install Disc in the MBP to boot from.
(Oh, is this a gray machine specific & Intel only 10.5 Install Disc?)
3. Is that a clone of an IntelMac install, if so, it won't ever work.
4. Again, thinking this isn't a Retail Install Disc, but PPC Macs mostly do not boot from USB.
5. Bad idea, the MBP would wany to make it GUID partition scheme, which is unbootable on PPC Macs.

I Just had a good talk with another Macfan and we came to the conclusion that my system doesn't support the DVD I have. So I just bought the original Leopard OSX Retail DVD for my Mac Mini. When I get them I am going to try to install them using Target Disk Modus. Is this the right way to install them?

Good, yes, with the Disc in the MBP & the MBP the one in Target mode... if the Mini was in Target mode the MBP would only install an Intel version of 10.5.

Well, I received the DVD's but I doubt If they are real because my Mac Mini and my Mac Book Pro doesn't recognize them. How can I see if they are original?

Everything you needed to know about Leopard, including what the disc looks like is on this tip:
Your Mac will not install Leopard from any other disc than the one whose icon is in that tip. If it says a Mac model on the disc, Leopard will not install on it. Leopard did not come out until Intel Macs, though its retail release would install on G4s with 867 Mhz or higher. System specific releases only work with the vintage Mac model they came with.OS X Mountain Lion, * Links may give me compensation

It looks like the problem is my MB Pro-drive that has difficulty reading everything higher than 8 speed and also reading dual layer. The person from who I bought the DVD is sending me a Single Layer version. And if that works I can send back the Dual Layer.

Can you highlight it in Disk Utility and garner more by clicking on the blue Info icon?
