Good lord! A guy has an error and you people jump straight to "erase and reinstall"?? :confused: <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />
DOSAL, have you tried any disk repairing utilities? How about fscking the disk in sigle-user mode?
First, disconnect any peripherals and remove any extra hardware you might have recently added.
Then, to "fsck" your disk (unix command for File System ChecK):
* Reboot holding apple-s
* You will get some text scrolling as you boot up
* when you get to the prompt, enter the command: fsck -y
* If it says "FILESYSTEM WAS MODIFIED", then fsck it again. Keep fscking it until it says the disk is okay.
* To continue booting up, enter the command: exit
If you can't even get the above to work, your system may indeed be screwed. A reinstall may be necessary, I suppose.
