The machine won't boot from either drive connected as a master.  I tried them 
one at a time.  I'm guessing I'll have to boot from a CD but don't know the 
process.  Any help is appreciated.

Have you tried disconnecting ad1 and booting only with ad0? Maybe one of
the drives just died on you. Try booting the system with one drive at a
time connecting as a master (Primary on IDE1).

Let us know how it goes.
