    I was playing around on my iBook the other day at work and was playing with the disc utility. I did a 'verify disc' and it came up with an error. But I can't repair it.(The 'repair disc' button is grey) Any ideas what to do? Thanks. Here is the error it is giving me.

    I think you cannot repair your boot disc. You have to boot from another disc, first. In your case, this should be the Mac OS X install disc, I think.

    Exactly right. If you can't find your restore discs though, you can run fsck. :)
