Checking the fuses is a good idea, it might just be the fuel pump fuse is blown. I think there are also some more fuses under the hood in a little black box, isn't there? I just remember someone saying on their car(can't remember what kind) that their fuel pump fuse was under the hood.
First I would just listen for the fuel pump the second you turn the key to the on position(not actually trying to start the car). It should run for like 5 seconds. It's under the back seat, and you could try putting your ear up the backseat to help you hear it better.
I just read in the field service manual that you can hook up a timing light to each spark plug wire to see if there is power going through the wires. You can also unplug a sparkplug wire, and hold a screw driver close (but not on) to where the spark plug wire attaches to a spark plug. Have someone else try to start the car and you should see a spark. Careful about doing this though, it's not the safest way of doing things, but it works. Don't touch any metal on the screwdriver when you do it.
