No pages from your site are currently included in Google's index. Indexing can take time. You may find it helpful to review our information for webmasters and webmaster guidelines. [?]

It can take weeks, it can take months. There are lots of similar posts here.

Just get listed in directories etc and get a few more links. There's no doubt Google likes to find your site itself - even with sitemaps - so it needs to follow links from sites already in it's index.

Make sure the sites you get links from appear in Google - assuming your site is of reasonable quality you should be indexed in a week or two.

Join a forum or two - get blogging - write an article or two.

Get a couple more incoming links to your site and Google should get you indexed within a week or so.

Make sure the links are from sites that are at leat a bit related/on-topic to your site.

For 48 hours listing you need:

robots.txt in root
1 or 2 links from PR5 pages on forum,blog,article sites.

It allways work for me.

I think G is mainly concerned about trust with a new site, so getting links from highly trusted sites, regardless of PR, is likely to be the most helpful thing you can do. Quantity of links probably doesn't matter that much at first, so I'd hold off on links from less trusted sites for a while.
