Please, urgent help required! (Okay, not real urgent, but I'm not sure if my 2500+ music files are at serious risk) Okay, my iMac DV 500 was fine until yesterday morning, then I tried to install Limewire. It was always crashing on startup, so I updated it to 4.8.1. It ran, got to the "pay for pro Later, Now, Why" box which wouldn't disappear, no clicks registered. Selecting the Limewire menu to quit, brought up a blank box instead of the menu and the whole system hung (beachballed, Dock unresponsive, Finder worked for a second before beachballing). So I held the power button in for 5 sec to shutdown and restart. Started up fine, all startup apps worked (iCal, Adium, etc - including that annoying Bluetooth not working dialog that comes up everytime de3spite not having Bluetooth and turning it off). I went to close the iCal window and it hung again, same deal. So 5 seconds of button pressing again, and startup again, this time, it got to the grey-Apple-on-white and stuck there. No spinning widget, no HDD noises, nothing. Oh crap. So in goes the Systemworks disc, reboot (power button again - is there any New World Mac equivalent to the three finger salute?), and Disk Doctor. Partitions, fine. Media, disabled (how do I run this?). Files, the usual broken resource forks, incorrect flagging, etc. Directories, it gets to Checking Catalogs (Speed Disk says "Checking B-tree catalogs"), hangs for a sec, and report "Unkown disk error, cannot continue". Uh oh. Vloume checker or whatever it's called sees the hard drive and shows the correct size and files are all intact apparently, but no scan can run on it. What the - ? So I reboot, and it automatically goes into OS9 instead (I never realised how fast and attractive OS9 really was, seriously - and Virtual PC is much faster than what I remember). Anyway, OS9 works fine (other than no network, therefore no 'Net) and all my files are apparently intact, but OSX no longer comes up as a startup disk, neither in the Control Panel nor the hold-down-Option menu. Help!
