Can I install the the iMac OS X install DVD in my MacBook Pro, or I must use the MacBook Pro installer DVD?
I do have one intel MacBook Pro with the OS 10.4.11 yet. As I was told, I must updade my software to OS 10.5 leopard before install the 10.6 Snow Leopard.
My brother just bought a iMac and it comes with the Mac OS 10.5.6 DVD installer. Can use this iMac DVD on my MacBook Pro?

The gray software restore discs that come with every Mac are designed to be used only with that specific model. An iMac restore disc will not work with a MacBook Pro.
If you are currently using Mac OS X 10.4.11, your best option for upgrading your MacBook Pro to Snow Leopard is to purchase the Mac Box Set for $169, which includes Mac OS X Snow Leopard, iLife '09, and iWork '09.
