    Verification failed. This disk could not be partitioned. Use Disk Utility to repair this disk.

    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.

    You can't repair the volume you're booted from. So pop in your OSX install CD, hold C during bootup to boot off that, then you can run Disk Utility from there and repair your drive
