    i have a ibook with a problem it takes a long time to boot to login screen about 5 minutes
    then i input my password it takes even more time then it goes to just the generic blue background(no menus or icons etc.) for about 5 more minutes before going to the console(black screen white text)

    any ideas on how to fix the problem

    Try booting from the OS X install disk and going to Disk Utility and repairing the disk.
