The gray screen with a flashing question mark usually means that the system can not find a boot drive. You said you tried to boot with your original Leopard DVD and that didn't work. If you are sure the DVD you tried booting with is the original install recovery DVD that came with your iMac, it's possible the optical drive is not working right. Did the iMac have any problem playing CDs or DVDs?
