First of, My main computer has always been and will always be a mac. I am not replacing it. That said I want to play around with BeOS and dual processor computers. I am having a problem getting the computer to start up however. I do not know if teh problem is the power source or the motherboard. When I try to turn it on nothing happens. I am curious if the fans should at least spin or something or if anyone has any idea what could be wrong?

if the fans don't power up, your motherboard's not plugged in properly. check the connection between the power supply and the motherboard. sometimes they're two seperate plugs that go into adjacent ports on the 'board. you might have reversed them.
