Is the system attempting to read the disk? If not, you probably need to
make some changes in the control panel. Access it by pressing
Option-Control-Reset immediately after turning on the system. IIRC, the
changes you want to make will be in the "Slots" menu, and involve which
slots are used for boot-up.
