    All of a sudden, when I boot up, I get a grey screen! I have tried all the combinations of keys to get up, but nothing. I put in the osX install disc and now it is starting up from that to the install screen. However, it won't do anything for my hardrive.

    What should I do to get it started? If I could reinstall, would that wipe out my files on the hard drive? Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can you run Disk Utility from the install disc's menu bar?
