IMac g3 folder with picasso face/Question Mark

I bought an IMac g3 at a tag sale and plugged it in and when it started up a screen with a folder with the picasso face and question mark was blinking. I cannot get past this screen even after resetting the pram.
I think my IMac g3 was made in the Summer of 2001 and is the grey/Graphite color and has a slot loading disk drive.
Does anyone know what I should do next?
Thank you for your help!

Probably one of the most frequent questions we get here on Mac-Forums. The hard drive on that iMac has no OS on it...you need to install an OS. It's also possible that the hard drive is dead.
