Hello all! I have a dillema. I was using my mom's 500 mhz G3 iBook circa 2k1, running 10.2.0 and it decided to start tweaking out on me. Being a somewhat aware computer person, I thought tat a simple restart would fix all of this. Ha! Shows you how much I know. Anyway, the boot-up screen showed the icon of the file with the question mark inside. find the OS 9 CD that we have and I booted up through the CD. I finish starting up and, to my suprise, the drive appears to be erased- the computer asks me if I want to initialize the disk. I hit cancel and proceed to run the disk repair on the OS 9 CD. After it's done scanning, the the results are: "Missing Thread Record, 62078, 4260". What does it all mean? Will the computer be able to recover? What fate lies in store for the iBook? Will any one be able to decipher the cryptic meaning of the Missing Threads... Anyways, any help is appreciated. Thanks.
