Emac will not load from Target Disc Mode

Emac target disc mode issue.
I just recieved a free 1ghz EMAC that has a broken dvd drive. For some reason while installing Leopard ; the optical drive failed. Upon restart; OSX will not load. I wont even get past the Grey Apple screen. I restarted the computer and pressed option. The HDD is mounted . I attached my Ibook via Target Disc Mode. I loaded the DVD into the Ibook. I restarted the Emac , pressed option (alt because the usb keyboard and mouse are non Apple branded) Now I see both my HDD, the HDD of my Ibook and the Leopard install DVD. I click on the DVD it greys out, but I move the mouse and it returns back to the normal icon. I was just wondering what I am doing wrong? Why cant I load directely from my Ibook's DVD rom ?
Any Advice would be greatly appreciated...
BTW the Disc is a Retail copy of osx.
