Default Brand new pc today..HELP!!

Hi ive just had my spanking new custom base unit delivered.
it has no OS pre installed.....
the power is on and the fans are spinning,even the one on the graphics card
i have placed a boot disk in the floppy drive but
both the dvd and floppy drive have no lights(and show no signs of life)
also there is no beep on start up!


can anyone help me please?



do i need to flash the bios or cmos or somthing like that?

i just tryed a bios reset..still no luck

what would be the most common thing i could check if it got knocked in transit?
