"Disk First Aid cannot verify or repair the startup disk or repair a 
write-protected disk, a CD-ROM, or a disk with open files. The startup 
disk was verified, and repaired if necessary, at boot time. In order to 
repair or verify the startup disk, please boot from the Mac OS X 
Install CD and verify the disk using Disk Utility from the Installer 
Apple Menu."
