    OK, heres the problem. I have Onyx and I did the usual diagnostic. It then says that "startup volume needs to be repaired" and that I need to boot into my Mac Os X install DVD and go to Disk Utility. I put in the DVD, press restart, and hold C. While my mac is rebooting it ejects the disk and takes me back to my normal desktop. What did I do wrong? Or what can I do to fix it?

    Try booting to the disc with option instead. Or just make sure that the disc doesn't have any scratches or smudges that could prevent the laser from reading it.
