Tough without the Install disc, but some things to try...
Does it boot to Single User Mode, CMD+s keys at bootup, if so try...
Repeat until it shows no errors fixed.
(Space between fsck AND -fy important).
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck...
If it still doesn't boot try Safe mode...
Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup)
If not there still may be a chance in Single User mode to move it back from the trash.
Or, do you have another Mac with Firewire around?

Hi, thank you so very much for responding. I have a macbook pro but no firewire on it. I am going to try singe user mode, I did the safe boot and it did not do anything. I would figure there would be a way to reverse it from the trash or boot to a bios and try to go back in time! If all else fails I will have to get a installation disk of the OS right? Also i noticed i do not have a command button. Would it be control ? Thank you very much!!!

After trying the single user mode keys I did get it to a different screen (black background with white words) after trying a couple times. But it will not let me type for some reason. I feel I am getting closer!!

If I do find someone with a mac with firewire how can that help? The single user mode is not reading my keyboard as far as I know.

If using a Windows KB Windows key normally = CMD on Macs.
It makes the Mac n t mode look like an expensive FW drive, where Repairs may be possible & such.

Thank you much. I may try the firewire thing if possible. Or I may find someone with an mac os x install disk or purchase one.

Your cheapes route would be to getb 10.6 if your Mac meets the requirements...
Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...
* Mac computer with an Intel processor
* 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)
* 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)
* DVD drive for installation
* Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
* Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...
Buy Snow Leopard > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
Call Apple Sales...in the US: 1-800-MY-APPLE. Or Support... 1-800-275-2273
