    Default open firmare, append device cdrom?

    hi,

    i have bought a second-hand powerbook g4 and i want to re-install mac
    os x...
    but when i try to boot (i pressed c)from the installtion disk there
    come a promt "restart your machine ...".
    then i read that i can press apple+v when the grey apple comes...so i
    did and saw some debugger information until the last line was "panic:
    hanging herer" or something like that followed with that old promt
    "restart your machine ...".

    after that started open firmware and put the command dev / ls
    but there wasn't any devices like cdrom or something like that.

    now my question is:
    what is wrong with that? mustn't there be any devices like cdrom?
    and if yes, how can i append that devices?

    thanks for all aswering that hopefully would come!

    Could be bad RAM, could be the wrong boot CD.
