Do you have a floppy disk drive installed in the computer?

It sounds like your floppy drive has died.
Try going into Setup and making sure that your Floppy isn't the first device your computer looks at in the boot sequence.
You will probably want it last after HD and CDRom.
And if you still use floppies, you might want to replace the drive pretty soon. Floppy drives are going the way of T-Rex. I don't think they even come on new computers anymore.
