How to replace a broken timing belt for a 1998 daewoo lanos?? Would there be any head damage?

yes it is quite possible that valves are bent if the cam belt broke or teeth stripped off of old belt, which unfortuneately means removing the cylinder head and getting it repaired (valves replaced and possibly guides) see some of my other posts for cam belt timming marks locations etc...
depending what motor is in your vehicle twin cam or single?

I have just replace my water pump and timming belt on my car. Now the car put all back together. Now the car will not start could the timming be off on the car now?

Any time you take off the timing belt and replace it could be off. It depends on how much care you took to make sure the timing didn't move in the process. Recheck the timing marks to make sure they are still on. If so then check for unplugged connectors. If you left the cam or crank sensor unplugged the computer won't get the signal telling it to spark. If you have a spark tester and a friend hook the tester up to cyl. 1 and have your friend crank the motor while you look to see if it sparks. Also if you removed the battery cables during the process then the car's factory security system may be stopping it from starting. The factory immobilizers can cause all kinds of problems after the battery gets low or is disconnected.

I had the timming belt done on my 94 honnda accord

The spark isnt controlled by the timing belt. The only thing that belt controls is the timing of the valves opening and closing. The spark is controlled by a crankshaft position sensor, or something like it. The only way i know how to check the timing of the valves is to take the valve cover off and observe the opening and closing of the valves as the engine is rotated by hand.
