Problem solved! I have done some more research in the past days and found that the format I did on the hard drive in target mode defaults to Master Boot Record (MBR). Powerbooks can boot only from drives formatted with one partition and with Apple Apple Partition Map (APM). So, I redid the erase command from Disk Utility and went into the Advanced options below the screen, selected one partition choice, clicked on APM, and proceeded to erase. A new cloning of the drive fixed the issue and now allows the Powerbook to boot from its own drive.

Now to get a proper install disk. Yes, thanks for the tip, Mayer, I know iBooks and Powerbooks can be upgraded to Leopard if the processor runs 867 MHz or faster. RAM should be 1 GB or more to run them fluidly.
