Do you have any Install Discs?
The drive can stop it from loading, try disconnecting the cables from the drive... any change?
Does holding alt key at bootup show anything?

I don't have the install discs.
I did take the hard drive out and tried to boot it. I got the chime, and then nothing...just like when I had the drive installed. After a few minutes of it being powered up, the fans all kicked in and so on. Just nothing on the screen. I know the displays are good, I tested them out.
I have not tried the ALT key at bootup.

Well, might be of some diagnostic use, but not for installing.
FireWire target disk mode...
Check whether you need a 6 pin to 9 pin FW cable or whatever each end has.
Boot the G5 in t mode, connect with FW cable & see if Disk Utility on another Mac see the G5's HDD & if we can get info on it.
And/or, can you get the exact brand & model number of the G5's drive off it's label?
