The only issue you may run into is that the system discs must be from the same exact model, otherwise it will not work. Apple keys them in such away that you cannot use the systems disc from another computer. For instance if you try to boot up your MBP from someone else's iMac (or even MacBook) system discs, it will give you an error.
Long term solution is to call Apple they will send out a new set of system discs for you. If you cannot wait, try your local apple store, the genius should help you.MacBook Pro 2.53GHzG4 Cube, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
