K so my mac is running on 10.4.11,and it wont boot up past the apple logo and the spinning gear thing, i have been searching for help but cant find any.. Anyways, i did try a couple things, first i reset the PRAM, didnt work. Then i went into single user mode and tried to fix it but when i loaded it, it gave me an error

Load of /sbin/launchd failed, errno 5

Boot from the Tiger install DVD by holding down 'C" after chime. Go to Utilities>Disk Utility and run Repair Disk from there. You cannot repair the drive you are booted from.
Keep us posted.
