I have a 200 firebird also and this has happened to me several times. What it is, is a problem with the igition lock cylinder. When you turn the key, all the accessories come on but the motor doesn't even try to turn. It's because even though you have turned the key as far as you can, the key for some reason is getting caught on accessories. It usually will start eventually. I've had mine replaced several times.

Also bear in mind that one of the causes of ignition lock degradation is having a lot of weight on the key. If you have a very large keyring, consider using a separate keyring with just the car key on it.

If the tractor had a battery in it when you were jumping it, there is a chance that the battery is bad. Try unhooking the tractors battery and trying again. Hook your jumper cables to the battery cables themselves without being attached to the battery. If it runs then just replace the battery. A battery with a short in it will keep the mower from charging and could cause it to die. If there was no battery in the tractor when you were jumping it, then the tractor is not charging and will have to be diagnosed as to what the problem is.
