Recently i noticed a slow down with my mac. So i thought i would erase the hard drive and reinstall Leopard. I booted into the disc, and erased the hard drive using disk utility.
Then i restarted the machine. Following this, i tried to boot back to the cd. I got the no boot sign.
So i thought i would go to verbose, to see what was happening.

The final message is "Still Waiting for Root Device".

What does that mean, and how do i fix it?
I know the disc works, because it's the disc i originally used to upgrade to leopard.
