10.6 is only a minimum requirement because you need to be able to
access the app store in order to download 10.7 and later.

since you can access the app store from your imac and have already
downloaded the installers, you don't actually need 10.6.

however, 10.5->10.11 is too big of a jump for migration assistant, so
unless you want to wipe and start over (which you most likely do not),
you'll need to migrate to something in between, such as 10.8 or 10.9,
and then migrate from that to .11.
