Did you align the timing marks correctly? Check and see if you have spark. Did you use a Bentley manual for reference. It's pretty detailed and probably provides the best step by step guidance if you haven't done this before.

If you did a quick remove and replace without moving enything your car should have started right away. Double check your timing to make sure that you were on TDC (you might need to remove the #1 spark plug for this). And check every plug by disconnecting, cleaning and re-connecting. Take a look at the fuses and if you have never repalced the main and fuel pump relays, maybe is a good time to do it.
Good Luck!
