I'm beginning to think this logic board might be hosed. I have tried booting it from an iBook in target mode, a firewire drive, and my ipod (with OS X installed) and none have worked.
Once I get the HD cable I'll try connecting a drive direct and see what happens. If that fails, I'm putting that board back on eBay (minus the working parts of course).
