iMac G3 OS 9.2 start-up issues

While at the dump today, I found a nice tangerine orange 1999 iMac G3, which runs OS 9.2. It was working nicely until about ten minutes ago, when it developed a problem: When I boot it up, it goes to a grey screen, with a folder symbol in the centre. Within this, it alternates between the Mac "smiling face" logo, and a question mark.
Does anyone know what the cause of this is, and how to fix it? I'm no good with computers - CRT televisions being my specialty. Computers are a whole new world - and frustration.

1. No OS installed on the hard drive.
2. The hard drive has just crashed/failed.
3. A cable may have come loose.
Also give this a read:
