going back to tiger-can i install with a usb external dvd drive or external usb2 hd

hey all-i have a new aluminum 20" 2ghz imac-intel-which has a defective dvd drive on it-it is going in to be changed next week-but in the meantime i have to reinstall tiger. I have leopard on it now and its not compatible with some software i need right now-i have the original tiger discs-but i need to know if i can install them with an external dvd drive i have hooked up to it-will it boot from this-if not can i somehow install it via an external usb2 hard drive

thanks jeff

you know, i just gotta say that this GREAT forum, probably the best out there. I belong to a few different ones, but none that have people which respond so promptly and courteously. Everytime i post a question i have gotten help right away,and never once made to feel like i was asking a dumb question. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone.

all the best jeff
