Several days ago our iMac started behaving slowly.  It eventually took a very long time to start up.  Using disk utility I erased the hard drive and tried to install OS 10.4.  I got the first CD loaded, but it would not have anything to do with the second CD.  The most I would get  was a grey screen with the Apple logo and the gear shift spinning.  I have already repaired the hard drive.  I decided to once again erase the hard drive.  I started the computer with the startup drive and went to disk utility.  It cannot find disk information.  I went to the startup disk option in the menu and it only shows the CD --- no hard drive.


This is getting worse and worse.  Any thoughts out there?
