On another note, The text with the First Aid section of Disk Utility is confusing. It says you need to run from the Install CD to repair a Startup disk. To my mind the drive I boot from (and in this case the only hard drive in the system *is* a startup disk. So the way *I* read that I'd have to use the install CD. I wonder what Apple means by Startup disk?? <ping sound as light bulb appears above head> In the System Preferences under Startup disk I can choose volume and OS. So I wander if in this case Startup disk does not refer to the drive, but a combination of partition and OS? Methinks Apple needs to clarify their terminology.
