Spotdog19 is on a distinguished road

I recently came into 3 power mac G4's (all different speeds, 933mhz, 1.25ghz and 1.33 ghz) as well as 5 G5's. I've successfully installed and SATA hard drive and OS X 10.5 on the G5. I bought some IDE drives for the G4's and when I plug them in and turn on the unit (with the 10.4 system disk in the drive) all I get is a folder flashing a question mark in the middle of the screen. On the G5 I got to the disk utility right away to format the drive before installing the software.

Any ideas as to what might be going on? I did attach both wires to the hard drive, even tried it in both available bays on the G4 with no luck. What am I missing?
