First guess is a faulty hard disk. If you have access to another Mac, connect them with a firewire cable, start yours in "target mode" by holding down the T key and see if the disk mounts on the other Mac. Use the drive utility to check your drive.

Please report on your findings so we can help from there. Remote troubleshooting is never easy ;-)
