Lost System HD

Ok I'm not that fluent in Mac. I have a user who works on a Quad G5. 10.4 Somehow he has lost his system drive. The computer boots and runs fine but the Hard Drive is not on the desktop anymore. How can I get it back for him?

I found a way to fix the problem. It was hidden. I got this info from macrumors.com
Using FileBuddy from macupdate.com
1. Enable administrator privileges
2. File -> Get Info -> Choose -> Macintosh HD (default selection)
3. Uncheck the box on the left which should be ticked as invisible
4. Do a finder search for a file named "com.apple.sidebarlists.plist" (you will need to activate the search to include hidden system files, delete this file)
5. Reboot your computer.
