I encountered the same problem today.
I turned the MB on, inserted the Install cd(1), powered down, started the mac and immediately pressed and held the c-key to force boot from dvd. After 4 or 5 minutes the apple logo appeared. It took the mac almost eight minutes to start up and when it did, it didn't recognize the hard drive. So there was the problem, I'm gonna turn it in at the dealer or replace the HD myself.
So my advice is to start from your dvd but hold the c-key longer this time. Al the other short cuts have no use. For the 'Press T during startup' for example you need a second mac, connect that one to your MB and then start your MB up with she short cut.
The fans going full speed is normal when you boot from an install cd.
