It won't cause conflict with Leopard (note that they are different operating systems). The only thing you will notice is that your computer will start by default in Tiger because it was the last operating system installed.
Also, note that you can only install Tiger if your Mac came with Tiger or an older OS X version

i wouldnt know if tiger is the the original operating system more than likely panther its a 2.5 g5 and is and second hand. i bought recently to replace my other g5 mac that i bought new 8 years ago which broke down on me, the operating system of which is tiger. i thinking if i put the old hardrive with tiger i would be able to access some of the old drivers that work with some of my old gear. what if i took out the hard drive with leopard from the new working mac and just put my old hard drive with tiger alone. would it boot up from the tiger whether tiger even if is not its original operating system?

That would work and you can try that. The problem is that, if the Mac came with Leopard, you won't be able to use Tiger, but if it came with Tiger or an older version, you will be able to use Tiger. You won't lose anything trying it
