Hi. I'm new to the forum, but not to mac. Problem: I woke up this am and my pb (g4 1.25; os 10.4.11) wouldn't boot. I got the apple logo then after the gear churned and churned I got the circle with a bar through it. Tried 3x. I'm remote (53147) and don't have my boot / system cd. Am I going to loose data? Advice?

Thanks, Peter
