I bought an iBook G4 from a friend and it was working great, I hooked it to another iBook by firewire cable and wiped the HD so I could easily start new.

Now when I boot all I get is a flashing folder icon with a ?mark and rotating face. I insert the OSX Disc and restart holding down the C key and nothing happens, It still comes to same flashing folder.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.4.1), iBook G4
