Whenever I try to start my LC, there's a disk appearing on the screen with a "?"

The opening can't be processed. How could I do to bypass this problem... I don't have the booting disks anymore...

Where could I find the files?

if you're getting a ? mark at startup, it means your system can't find a vaild startup disk.  This could be for _many_ reasons.  The only way to start it up would be w/ a boot disk.  You could obtain one in many ways.  call apple.  They will ship you old sys disks for a couple of bucks, ($9.95 maybe?).  Or you could find a friend w/ the disks. :-) i believe it's even legal w/ systems 7.5.3 or less!  Or you can download 7.5.3rev2 from ftp.info.apple.com  i'm not sure the exact file path, but it's something like apple_support:apple_softwareupdates:US:Macintosh:System:OlderSystems:sys 7.5.3...

good luck, i hope you can fix your problem.  You will almost definately need to reinstall your system and also proably need to run norton or disk first aid or something similar.
