has the package of dried yeast been open for a while? Is it out of date? Been kept it a too warm area? It could have just got tired and given up the ghost? I store mine in an airtight container in the 'fridge.

1 part boiling to 2 parts cold water is what I usually allow and if you use yeast in beer making you would know to let it stand for 10 minutes or so, so it isn't that.

It sounds as though the yeast is faulty. I use Allinsons dried yeast and don't have any problems with it normally. I also use Doves Farm fast acting yeast which is OK but not quite as reliable as Allinsons IMO
