OS X partition not recognized as startup disk
I have a rather serious issue. Not quite sure what happened, but somehow part of my OS X partition became corrupted and is no longer recognized as a startup disk. I ran techtool pro and tried to repair the volume from there without luck, then ran a Leopard install DVD and ran disk utility's repair disk twice (first time came back with an error, second it was able to complete and fix all issues).
Where I'm currently at. I am able to view all of my files via Macdrive and my Bootcamp XP partition without issue and am currently backing up any files I hadn't previously backed up. My question is, will I have to do a full reinstall of OS X or is it possible to somehow activate the drive as a startup disk or diagnose where the problem lies and address it?
Very grateful for any thoughts on the matter...

It's from a thread where someone has accidentally deleted the partition table and used a Linux Live CD to repair it, so he could boot again into Mac OS X.
