10.5: Repair Time Machine after logic board changes

PPC G5 Leopard 10.5.8 to -> Mac Mini Snow Leopard 10.6.4 Time Machine adopt ownership?

Curious to know if this solution would work for my situation...
Time Machine was set up on a PPC G5 running Leopard(10.5.8)
Recently purchased a Mac Mini (Snow Leopard 10.6.4) and had manually transferred desired files from PPC G5 to Mac Mini over LAN. Customized Mini as desired (preferences, apps, etc.) Had removed Time Machine HDD from PPC G5 placed into external enclosure and connected via USB to Mac Mini.

PPC G5 has then since been completely wiped with a fresh install of Leopard.

Is there any way the Mac Mini can take ownership of previous system Time Machine backups and continue with incremental back ups?

Was not aware that Snow Leopard had the Migrate feature with Time Machine - that's why it was not done.

Any help, guidance, direction, magic spells, would be greatly appreciated!
