Ibook G3 frooze, hard kill, now will not start, help!
The computer clicks, like: click, click, click...hard drive make normal sound, and than works fine.
Well, I choose to hold the power button down to force shutdown, and now the power button is now responsive.
In the past couple days, it has took like fifteen minutes to boot. That includes the Grey screen, going to a blue screen and nothing happening. So I force shutdown and reboot, then it goes to login screen and when I click my name, the beachball spins and nothing happens. So I reboot again, it goes directly to my desktop, the beachball spins, and the system starts up.
I have an iBook G3 600MHz, 384MB SDRAM, 40GB hard drive (SMART verified, disk premissions fine) and 8GB left. Do I have too many files on my computer? Does the hard drive need defraging? Am I screwed?

Update, it booted up. I am waiting to see what happens....going to desktop, beach ball spinning, no clicks, OS-X has booted!
Oh, I wish I had the money for a new computer! 470.00 per month in unemployment does not afford even a refurb.

I did the command + S at start up and ran /sbin/fsck -fy, the return indicacted it was fine.
Not sure what the hell is going on. I rebooted from the command line and the system is at the grey screen with Apple and spinning thingy - for the past 7 minutes. Last night it took twenty-two minutes to boot, and the system frooze simply running Camino and Finder. After ten minutes of the beachball spinning, I just hard killed the system and considered selling for parts on eBay.
