this could be tons of different things. firstly, try booting off of your OS X install CD and run Disk Utilities, then repair the file permissions. if you need step by step directions let me know and I'll post them.

Try and use another machine to boot up the mac with the fault, connect them both via firewire and turn on the poorly mac while holding the 'T' key down, keep holding it down till the Firewire symbol comes on the screen. boot up your good mac and you should in theory have the poorly mac mounted as an external HD on your desktop, run disk utility through it as a start - after it has repaired the poorly mac boot up on it as normal. If that does not work let me know how it went.
