I have been using the "old" method of TM backing upto my ReadyNAS Duo for some time now.
However after a second hard drive failure, I am now trying to boot from from the osx install discs and take the restore from TM option.
This time round I put in the nas user and pass but then get the "Volume "ReadyNAS" cannot be mounted.

Is this correct?
If you can't login to the relevant share using the username and password you have set you may need to try installing Mac OS X from the Install Disks then using the Migration Assistant.

You'll probably want to restore onto the iMac, I guess.
However for those wondering, I know of an example of a restore working onto a different machine. A MacBook running Leopard was the machine that was backed up and a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard was restored onto.
Edit: alternatively follow the guide sphardy referenced.
