    do you hear any clicking noises? Try starting up from the OS disk and see if it sees your HD. The folder with the question mark means that it can't find a startup folder, so either you HD is dead or somthing got corrupted and it can't boot from it.

    your HD is probably dead but try the leopard instal disk and go to disk utility and see if it recognizes your HD it probalby would not hurt to run the hardware test as well.
