Tried to install OS 10.3 and my computer crashed

I have an iMac g4 with OS 10.2 and when I tried to install a 10.3 disc the computer basically froze so I shut it down. Now when I restart it it says I have no OS X on there and it can't restart from OS 9 either. When I turn on the computer it starts up with a white screen and can't even boot from the Panther install disc. HELP!

zap pram

try zapping parameter ram:
restart then hold down
option--p-r

let it bong about 4 times...

then try holding down "c" to see if it will boot off the Panther disk, then do a clean install (don't upgrade, just archive previous systems)
