I assume you are talking about a Quadra 800 not a 600. Try zapping the
PRAM. Turn the Mac on, and hold Command-Option-P-R until you hear the
startup bong again. Keep holding until it has cycled 3 times.

See if it boots from the drive.

If not, does this Mac have a CD Rom drive? I can send you a bootable CD
with a System 7.5.5 installer.
