Where did my hard drive go?

Yesterday I was using my PowerBook g3, and when i restarted, it could not find the heard drive. It could boot into a GUI phase, with a floppy disk and a flashing question mark. Any help?

Actually, I found the root of all evil, being that it cannot find the hard drive for booting. How do i do that?

Try booting with the restore DVD (or CD) that came with your computer and boot off of it. Then proceed to go to Disk Utility and see if your HDD is still there.If its there, its most likely corrupt, and you should do a Repair Disk command, but most likely its a goner so you want to buy a new HDD from ifixit or newegg.
