Crashed: How to Boot into Disk Utility without Install Disk

My iMac has crashed. I want to run the disk utility but I bought Lion from the app store so I don't have an install disk.

Any ideas?

Thank you. I got to Internet recovery but, when wireless and connected to wifi, I got error message "1007F". Plugged it in to Ethernet, and now I have a clock image and "24:00" below the spinning globe.

Hope that's good.
