If other external drives are working fine, then it sure sounds like the Seagate. Any chance you have disconnected it without first ejecting or dragging the icon to Trash to get it dismounted? That can corrupt the drive.

With the drive attached does it appear in Disk Utility on your boot drive? If so try and run Repair Disk from there. If not things do look glum.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
