Sometimes machines which "wake up" the first time with an image or install of the OS that was actually performed on another machine have trouble recognizing the hard drivedrive as the primary boot device. Sometimes that folder will flash for a while, and then it will eventually find it. You might try resetting the PMU and PRAM. Actually, this vaguely sounds like a scenario which may involve the machine having a PRAM/open firmware password in place (machines that do can be especially problematic), so you may want to change the amount of RAM and immediately reset the PRAM three times in order to clear a PRAM password, in case there is any possibility of the machine having one.

Unless I'm reading you wrong, it sounds like you haven't tried to do a regular OS install on this machine, i.e. put the Tiger DVD in the machine, etc. If you haven't done this because you are not able to for some reason, then that could possibly support evidence that there is a password in place, as I mentioned above.
