individual_echo is on a distinguished road

individual_echo is offline
I got a G4 and at first it just had a gray screen. Then it showed a folder with a question mark after i opened the case and plugged it into my XP machine (to backup the data) There is saw the disk was not initialized nothing. So i initialized it and saw that it shows the disk is not allocated. So i left it there and plugged it back into the Mac. Put the OS X disk in and now i get to the installation but it does not install. It says "there was an error installing the software". I tried the repair but it also does not want to. I have no idea what was done to the machine because someone else did something on the network and from then it was like this. Now i have to try and sort it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
