When I start teh computer in target mode from another computer It sees the drive and the install cd.  However, when I try to start up the computer with the OSx disc it shows me a question mark folder.  The cd reader is spinning and must work because it shows in the target mode as a drive.  Disc utility says the HD is fine.


Any help would be greatly appreciated

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
