So, are you able to boot to the Apple installation DVD (the DVD is grey in color) that came with the laptop and get the installation menu and what not? Do you have data on the hard drive that you want to keep, or are you attempting to do a clean installation? Are you attempting to upgrade your current installation to 10.4 from an earlier version on OS X, or trying to repair a 10.4 installation that had previously been working? I'm not really sure from your description where to start.
