    I can't get Disk Utility to run. (Error code 1000) Do I have to reinstall the whole OS or is there a way to just freshen up the Disk Utility? If I have to reinstall, what is the safest and best way?

    Have you tried booting from your OSX CD then running the Disk Utility from there?

    Boot into X, put your OSX CD in the drive then reboot holding down the 'c' key.
