    Hi everyone,

    I have a big problem. My iBook G4 wont startup. I started in verbose mode and I get the following message. disk0s3: I/O error and then it tells me Couldn't find root user. Sleeping and trying again.
    A boot in Safe Mode didnt work.
    I booted from the System DVD and ran disk utility and it told me that the disk seems ok. I repaired both the disk and the permissions.

    The problem occurred after I installed iTunes, Safari and a Security Update and the computer froze when trying to restart.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank You.

    Sounds like your mount point might be screwed up. I'm not sure that a disk repair would fix this. The easiest thing is to just backup your data, and start fresh.

    Cheers
