it sounds like its not detecting your hd at all, Id say do an erase and install. as far as accessing your data, you might be able to hook up up to another mac via firewire and use your mac as an external hard drive( just so its seen by the other mac) and then copy your files, but it might not work. Id pretty much just count your losses and start over. have you tried booting from the os install cd? and tried installing, if it lets you, the os may just be corrupt, if not, your hd may be gone. have you tried starting in safe boot mode by holding down shift while starting up?
