Using a Powerbook Software Install and Restore CD to upgrade a different Mac?

in macOS edited January 2014
I'm wondering if this is feasible? I have a new Powerbook 12" that came (of course) with the 10.2.7 Software Install and Restore CD, and an iMac DV+ still running 9.2.2, and I'd like to have the iMac running on Jaguar (I'm waiting a couple more months before installing Panther).

Is the Powerbook CD an option for upgrading an iMac? Or would fundamentally different Restore CDs be used on the two different products?

If doable, any advice or tips?

    Odd are that it will work. Last time I tried to upgrade an OS X iBook with the software from my 12" Powerbook the installer wanted to wipe the disk and start over. So I didn't bother.
