I take it that you just want to run 10.3 and no longer require OS9.
After starting from the OSX install disc, run Disc Utilities. Form there you can erase the hard drive. You should then be able to install OSX.

could be a hardware problem to be honest. heres what you should try: load a system disk and hit C during boot up and see if you have the same symptoms in disk boot mode. if you do, than it is most likely a hardware issue. if you dont, it could be software related. if that doesnt work: hit V when you boot up and it will go into verbose mode. this will show you all of the background processes that are working during startup. while watching the screen, check to see if you have any stalls during load and note them. also, disconnect all peripheral devices and try removing ram (1 stick at a time) to see if that is a problem as well.

How did you try to eject the disc?
Drag it to the trash or Command E or put away?
You may need to repair your permissions on your main hard drive.

since apple drives are formatted in HSF+, a file system that windows cannon read, the chances of it even being bossible to run anything on it from a PC is very very slim.
