Currently running 10.5.8

I am attempting to wipe and restore this laptop to its OG condition so I can give it to a friend. I have the original install disk OS 10.4 AHT Version 2.5 Disc Version 1.1

I pop in the disk and the computer recognizes the disk. But I cannot get the computer to boot the startup disk.

1. I have attempted to restart and shutdown the computer while holding C. It boots normally.
2. I have held down the option key while booting and it bought me to a screen. That screen only gave me the option to click on the mac HD drive.
3. I have used system preferences - start up disk- selected the 10.4 install disk and clicked restart. That just boots through like normal.

Any other way to go about this? Really would love some help...
