    My computer had a melt down last night. iMac 600mhz (latest version of 10.2).

    I tried to reload my firewall and then was never able to re-boot in OSX. I ran First Aid and Nortons disk repair in Classic and came up with these problems:

    Problem: Custom icon missing
    Problem: Mount Check found serious errors
    Problem: Overlapped extent allocation
    Problem: Volume bit Map nees minor repair
    Problem: Volume header needs minor repair.

    Unable to complete repairs. The volume "BLARNEY" was unable to mount.

    So what do I do to get back to where I was a working computer under OS X. I'm getting an external HD before I turn it back so I can back everything up before attemptimg anything, but if you could help that would be MUCH appreciated.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    i would suggest trying to boot up on the osx cd and see if it sees the drive. If it does, try a clean install of osx (but don't wipe the drive)

    Also...Most people don't trust Norton at all....

    If you're desperate and need the stuff off the drive, consider diskwarrior....works better with the volume information and storage and such better than norton.

    I don't know if this is possible ( or easily reachable), i don't have an imac, but i had a problem with my power mac where the drives would not mount because one of the IDE cables had come a little loose.

    If you are able to boot off the external drive and copy everything off the drive, then the problem IS the os and try the clean install without wiping the drive.
