    I accidentally my whole location.
    Run fsck in single user mode. Post back with results.

    Tanx, Sun Baked, that worked!!!

    I typed '/sbin/fsck -fy' & igorned many 'Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds ...' errors. I kept on typing until it came up clean. Rebooted & ran OnyX -- I'm good to go <whew>. I didn't know abt Cmd-S. Tanx again.
