emendoz1 is on a distinguished road

I have a MAc G4 Sawtooth w/ 400 MHZ, 1 gig of ram and a 60 gig HD.

I tried many times to install OSX (Tiger) but it keeps telling me the same thing over and over. "Please try to install the OS again" There was an error and you need to install the OS again. I tried switching hard drives but nothing. I even put ina SCSI card (adaptec) and a SCSI HD but the same thing happens. I used and older drive with OSX that I had from another G4 and when it boots, the Finder bar at the top starts to flicker and it apears and dissapears on and off. I have never seen this before! Does anyone have any suggestions? When this problem started I had a 60 gig HD installed and partitioned into two equal parts, then one day I went to turn it on, the chime sounded and as soon as it showed the grey screen with the small wheel turning the system would shut right off.
