    do you still have your install discs? you can use Pacifist to load the first disc and then search for Disk Utility and then reinstall it.

    also you can always use Disk Utility while booted into your install disc.

    well your out of luck then. make sure you look after your install discs as they are very useful in this situation.

    hopefully someone using 10.3 can zip their Disk Utility and attach it to a post. unfortunately the user base on 10.3 is a lot smaller these days especially as Mac forum members like to be using the latest.

    Get Applejack. It will run needed Terminal routines for you.

    you shouldnt openly type your email on the net like that youll get spam.

    as i said not many people use Panther now especially on a Mac forum... prob even less than win 2000 both being the 2nd oldest OS.

    search for the Unix command to format to HFS+ or hopefully someone will attach a Panther version of Disk Util.
