I want to install a new hard drive in my MacBook and then restore from Time Machine. After I install the new hard drive do I have to reboot from the original OS X disk that came with my MacBook or can I just use the new Snow Leopard disk and restore from time machine?

If I can't reboot right from the Snow Leopard Disk would I have to restore from the original disk, then install Snow Leopard and then restore from time machine?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
