Help? All I get is grey screen with 'don't do anything i'm thinking' icon (circle with slash through it) and the sun wheel thing - this just goes and goes and goes...

I tried to revert to panther - starting up of Panther install disk, and just got the same grey screen

didn't get any response to my question - but for the benefit of anyone else who encounters same problem: ended up backing up all the data, erasing and clean installing Tiger - all runnning sweetly now.

The circle with a slash through it doesn't say it's thinking, it says "no bootable system found". Sorry that I didn't see your question before... There could've been some things you could have done. One among them: Start with the option key down, could've shown you whether there _was_ a bootable system... Glad you were able to backup.
