Focus Help

Alrighty, I thought I'd never have trouble with my Focus until now. I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX-5 (USA) and I can't get the bloody thing to start. I
showed up and unlocked it and went to start it and it wouldn't start. I noticed the red light for the alarm would stay on and when I tried to start it, it would turn off (when I tried to start it, all the lights would turn off and refuse to turn on). I thought maybe I had a dead battery, and so I tried to jump it. It made the clicking sound. No start though. What I noticed is, even with the key in the on position and if I keep my foot on the brake, I can't shift it into drive from park. I'm thinking somehow the alarm got tripped. Is there anything I can do to get my Focus on the road again? The alarm light still stays on at solid red, so any ideas? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I tried reading the manual, but found nothing remotely useful.
Thanks, Mojo

Try the fuel cut off switch. Located in the passenger foot well. Remove the cover, push the button, wait a few seconds, start car.

Updated, it was a loose battery cable :-) So now my Focus is up and running again. Thanks for the help.
