How to test the Fuel Pump(s) ?? after injector ins (archive)

Just installed four new fuel injectors this weekend and car wouldn't start after the job was completed. This doesn't completely surprise me, I figured they would take some time to re-prime so I left the key in #1 (accessories) position for a while to let the fuel pump fill them up. I tried cranking a few times but it never started, I repeated this series a few more times but nothing. I don't hear the fuel pump humming while the key's at #1 which leads me to believe thats the problem. Can I just pull a fuel line somewhere, turn the key and see if it pumps fuel everywhere or is a multimeter needed (procedure?, please)? I'm sure it's a fuel delivery problem because afterall I replaced injectors and the cap and rotor are brand new. Please help, thanks!
