iBook G4 HD issue

i have an ibook thats been sitting in its box for a few months because the hard drive went,
it was my sisters, and i thought nothing of it as far as repair.
the other day i found this link:
and decided to give it a shot.
when i got to the hard drive itself, the motherboard connection had unattached itself. i figured it was an easy fix.
i re-connected it, re-assembled, but the ibook still wont boot.
when attempting a fresh install the hard drive doesnt show up.
i can hear it working/it sounds fine.
any ideas on getting it to boot?
