    You cannot repair your system volume when you have booted off that same volume. You need to boot the install DVD that came with your Mac and launch Disk Utility after having booted off the DVD. That will allow you to run a repair on your system volume.

    Check the section that starts "Try Disk Utility" on this Apple knowledge base article.
