what to do...

first off, what happened before this happened?? did it crash, melt etc?

secondly, if it was justa normal shutdownbefore it happened try, flashing the PRAM, holding down cmd-opt-P-R whilst turning on should do the trick, holdit down until you hold the third bong.

if that doesn't work try booting off a system CD if you have one and see if you can select the Hard drive with your system folder on using the startup disk control panel

Sounds like something in Open Firmware isn't quite right

I'd reset open firmware, see if that helps.

Thanks, I reset the PRAM, and it booted right up! It is nicer that I thought G3 233 Mhz, Mac OS X 10.2.8, 384 MB RAM, Photoshop 7.0, Office X!, all for $20.00!!!!
