My PowerBook just crapped out on me and I can't find my system disks to do an erase and install (just moved). I've got a bootable backup from my iMac. Is there anything I can do to reinstall the system from that backup onto my PowerBook instead of onto the iMac?

Not really, no: it'd be very difficult to accomplish effectively...

Don't do this. I tried it once from MacBook to iMac and it was a disaster!!

Thanks. I'll keep looking for the disks instead!
