    i have a G4 running tiger that's been buggy lately so i ran Disk Utility. i got this message:

    Invalid node structure
    The volume Untitled needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair

    fair enough, but the "repair disk" button is low-lit, not allowing me to repair. now what?

    Try booting into single user mode (command-S) and running "fsck -fy".

    I think that's the proper way to go about it, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
