I am trying to install 10.4 fresh onto a brand new hard drive, it is in my old macbook. When I start up the computer I hold down "C" just like all the guides tell me to and I get a flashing folder. The disc is spinning but nothing happens.

I have also held doen the "control" key and nothing happens. The reason I am replacing the hard drive is because the previous hard drive gave me the same flashing folder and wouldn't open up to disc utility when I put in the tiger install disc. I am more of a windows guy and don't know much about mac's.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4)
