Default Lost all electrical

Hello everyone:

My truck (2000 1500 5.9 gas) has set for several weeks, and the battery was almost dead, very slow cranking over. I hooked booster cables on it for a few minutes to let it charge up - now when I went back out there is no power anywhere in the truck, its like the battery was unhooked. the cables were hooked up correctly.
Is there a fusable link somewhere that may be causing this?
I'm in a bit of a panic, as i need the truck for work tomorrow morning.

Thanks in advance for any help that you can give me.

bad battery , too dead to charge -- use a differant battery .

then if not that , then it could be a bad alternator --

good luck
