    You can't repair the disk you've booted from so you'll want to back everything up (probably unnecessary but do it all the same) and then either run fsck or start from the OSX discs and use that version of Disk Utility to repair your hard drive. :)

    Listen to MadJew -- especially the "back up your data" part 1st.

    i really miss the ability to repair your running drive in OS 9, when i have to now i tend to put the mac in question into target disk mode and plug it into annother mac to repair it, also gives me a convenient place to backup to.
