    You cannot repair the disk that you booted from. Boot from your startup CD and then run disk utility to repair.

    Press and hold the "C" key.

    Here are some others that affect the boot sequence for future reference.

    I think it's C. Or hold down option to get a chooser screen for all bootable volumes.
