Why wont my PowerBook g4 recognise startup disk?

Text:

Recently, the hard drive in my powerbook g4 started making horrible clicking noises, I immediately turned it off. When I turned it back on, it wouldn't boot. I just got an image of a folder with a question mark flashing on it. After doing some research I came to the conclusion that the hard drive must need replacing, so i ordered a new one from ifixit and installed it but now it seems as though I can't install the os from a boot disk.
 
I insert the only install disk I have which is actually for my MacBook Pro (this could be the problem-I don't have the original one as this is a second hand lap top) and hold down "option" as it starts up and this is the screen that greets me:
 
[image|144642image|144642|align=left]
[image|144642image|144642|align=left]
 
What am I doing wrong? Did I need to replace the hard drive? Do I need a different os install disk?
 
It should also be noted that it's a very old laptop (I think circa 2004) so I have also been wondering if perhaps the dvd drive is faulty or can't read the disk that the os install is on.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
