Flashing Globe icon when i restart or switch on my mac

When i restart or switch on my G5 iMac i get a flashing globe icon and it stays like that for some time not untill i remove ever cable except power (printer, external dvd-rw, external hard drive and eithernet) dose it work. I searched the internet and foudn this:

- The flashing globe icon means you are trying to start from a netboot server that doesn't exist or is offline.

I have no idea what that mean and how i could fix it, any ideas?

go to preferences-> startup disk->change it back to local startup instead of network.

The solution is here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=31355

Sounds like you just need to use Startup Disk system preference and change your startup disk from Network to the Local Drive.

Hope that helps!
