Internal drives (with all my data) just got locked?

I have 3 internal drives in my G5, and after restating for some %#*@ reason, they are all locked now, and I don’t see how to unlock them?

Well to start with, the G5 used a Motorola power PC processor. OS X 10.6 requires an Intel processor.

The highest system your machine will run on in 10.5.8.

Try booting from a 10.5 system or a retail 10.5 DVD or the original system installation disk.

To boot from the optical drive, insert the disk and hold down the C key on start up.
