I really liked my Pro too but found that I didn't use it that much. Thus why I went to iMac and iPad as my house combo.

I have set up VNC to open at boot without the OS being logged in by doing this.
• sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate
• sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -configure -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes
• sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -configure -clientopts -setvncpw -vncpw abc (where "abc" is the password you want to use)
I have to use either VNC with the ability to screen share or some form of remote install os x (in reverse form) without booting OS X and only working from the startup screen that appears when you put the disk in and reboot to install OS X. I was going to target disk mode, but that also requires me to use the computer that OS X is being installed on. I have to do this completely remotely since I can't see the screen until booted into OS X and mirrored to my external.
This complicated situation comes from the fact I cannot force my iMac to use the external display if the system is not booted into OS X and is only at the start screen, and my iMac screen is faulty hence making me use the external display.
So....... iMac needs to reinstall OS X, cannot because install screen uses main display, have enabled VNC at boot, but no way to screen share that I know of without booting OS X completely up rather than being at install screen.

I use my iMac more for movies, PS and stuff. The screen is awesome.
Use the MBP for just about everything else, like being mobile.

Yes - if you boot the iMac in "target disk mode" (How to use and troubleshoot FireWire target disk mode) and connect it to your PB, the iMac's disk should appear as a possible destination for an install
Make sure that the target computer is turned off.
If you are using an Apple portable computer such as a PowerBook or MacBook as the target computer, plug in its AC power adapter.
Use a FireWire cable to connect the target computer to a host computer. The host computer can be powered on.
Start up the target computer and immediately press and hold down the T key until the FireWire icon appears. The hard disk of the target computer should become available to the host computer and will likely appear on desktop. (If the target computer is running Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger, you can also open System Preferences, choose Startup Disk, and click Target Disk Mode. Restart the computer and it will start up in Target Disk Mode.)
When you are finished copying files, locate the target computer's hard disk icon on the desktop of the host computer and drag it to the Trash or choose Eject (or Put Away) from the File menu.
Press the target computer's power button to turn it off.
Unplug the FireWire cable.
