When I try to erase hard drive on my G5, it starts normally, then stops just shy of half way mark.  It's been there for 24 hours now.

I inserted orig. OS disk, held down option key after tone, chose disk utility, then erase and the option for the "8x" erase.  Doesn't give me any error message, the progress bar just stops at the half way point.. and it's been that way for 24 hours now.  Any help would be appreciated.
