Why do I get a flashing icon on startup?

I installed a new combo drive successfully. Upon startup, I now get a flashing icon with alternating question mark and faces. I can't find any information on what that icon means. I've started it from an OSX cd, but cannot access hard drive. Did I break something while repairing it? Is there a solution? Thanks.
