Sounds sort of like something that happened to me. I was at my friends shop, I had just stopped by to say hi. He wanted to see the car, so I grabbed my rag and cleaned the oil off of the engine. Well, said goodbye, the car cranked, it started for a second, then died. None of us could figure out what had happened. So we looked at everything to find out what wsa wrong, but we couldn't find it. Then I noticed a red wire that wasn't attached to anything. While cleaning up the oil the rag had bumped the red postive lead off of the ignition coil.

I would say start by checking the wiring around the coil, it definately sounds like something is either not connected or improperly connected.
